On December 16, 2021, EMTC filed a written statement for the record with the House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee for the December 2nd hearing on "Supporting U.S. Workers, Businesses, and the Environment in the Face of Unfair Chinese Trade Practices".
EMTC's comments are drafted to counter the testimony of hearing witness Kimberly Glas, President & CEO, National Council of Textile Organizations, who recommended that Congress "Close the Section 321 De Minimis Tariff Loophole." See page 11 of testimony.
Now is the time for all companies involved in the e-commerce industry to join EMTC as it is clear that Congress has its sights on restricting e-commerce shipments. Therefore, EMTC will mount a broad grassroots effort to educate Congress and policymakers about how critical e-commerce is to MSME e-sellers.
