“In a time of great economic challenges to small businesses already, the last thing we needed was an added financial burden from tariffs. GSP expiration has affected my hiring plans for this year already.”

JBH Intertrade is a small company, specializing in imports of processed fruit and vegetable products. Suspension of GSP has made certain products we import non-viable and may jeopardize our business plan going forward.
We have plans to hire some additional staff over the next 2 years. Unfortunately, the areas requiring additional staff are also those directly impacted by GSP.

GSP expiration has had a huge negative impact on the strategy of our small business, and we had to cancel our plans of increasing workforce for this year.
More than that, we are still doing business on belief that GSP will be renewed and we will recuperate; but if it will be not, we will have to come up with new product strategy and sales strategy, and we don’t have our hopes high that it will be feasible at this point.
