The owner of a fast-growing U.S. beverage company wishes to import chocolate milk and has asked you, the vice president of sales, to recommend foreign sources. You know of some of the best sources in France, Canada, and Australia.
Which U.S. trade laws should you consider when selecting a source? You researched and determined that sources of chocolate milk in France suit your purpose. However, the tariff imposed by the U.S. government on the import of chocolate milk (17%) from France makes this option non-competitive. In your opinion, is there any way by which you can seek a reduction on the tariff? If so, how? If not, why?
