GSP is scheduled to expire in a little over 3 months – and Congress will not be in Washington for most of that time. The Coalition for GSP is launching a new effort to collect video testimonials from companies sharing why they need Congress to renew GSP.
Our first video comes from Xpres LLC in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. After tripling employment from 25 to 75 workers since 2015, Xpres has been forced to downsize this year due to Covid-19. Not only did Xpres shut down for 3 weeks, many of its customers around the country did too. In the words of CEO Jan Reid, it’d be “double trouble” if GSP expires and its raw material imports from Thailand face 10% tariffs starting January 1.
