GSP expiration has cost our company over $50,000 so far this year. We’ve had to lay off a new hire just last month.

We are a small company that imports fine jewelry from Thailand for distribution to retailers in the US, Canada, Mexico and Caribbean.
Since GSP expired last year, we have been forced to downsize our staff. In order to stay solvent, our company needs for the GSP to be reinstated.

We’ve been importing chromium trioxide from Kazakhstan for several years. The payment of duties because of GSP expiration has hurt our competitiveness, caused us to lose sales, and reduced our need for warehouse labor due to the lower sales volume.
Reinstatement of the GSP program will enable us to resume our company’s growth (and the resultant employment).
