Impact of Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act on US-India Economic Ties

The Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 includes a variety of requirements on trade protection and general trade policy, including potential trade impacts with India. The law expands requirements on imports to ensure health, safety, and the protection of intellectual property rights. It includes provisions to prevent “dumping,” a method of predatory pricing used by foreign companies to undercut local markets and drive away competition, and to protect the United States from currency manipulation. It also allows smaller shipments to enter the U.S. territory without burdensome entry processes. The attached primer includes additional information.
