likely impact of the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement (FTA) on the U.S.

specific industry sectors and the interests of U.S. consumers. The 
Commission transmitted its report (U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement: 
Potential Economy-wide and Selected Sectoral Effects, inv. No. TA-2104-
24, USITC pub. 3949) to the USTR in September 2007.
    The United States and Korea recently concluded negotiations to 
modify the FTA, including certain provisions relating to the passenger 
vehicle sector. In its request letter, the Committee requested that the 
Commission, under section 332(g) of the Tariff Act of 1930, update its 
2007 assessment with respect to the passenger vehicle sector. The 
Committee asked that the Commission use the most recent data available 
and include a modeling simulation of the effects of the auto nontariff 
measures in its assessment.
    Written Submissions: Because of the short time frame requested by 
the Committee, the Commission will not hold a public hearing in 
connection with this investigation. However, interested parties are 
invited to submit written statements concerning this investigation. All 
written submissions should be addressed to the Secretary, and should be 
received not later than 5:15 p.m., February 14, 2011. All written 
submissions must conform with the provisions of section 201.8 of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 201.8). Section 
201.8 requires that a signed original (or a copy so designated) and 
fourteen (14) copies of each document be filed. In the event that 
confidential treatment of a document is requested, at least four (4) 
additional copies must be filed, in which the confidential information 
must be deleted (see the following paragraph for further information 
regarding confidential business information). The Commission's rules 
authorize filing submissions with the Secretary by facsimile or 
electronic means only to the extent permitted by section 201.8 of the 
rules (see Handbook on Electronic Filing Procedures, http://
www.usitc.gov/docket_services/documents/handbook_on_electronic_
filing.pdf). Persons with questions regarding electronic filing should 
contact the Secretary (202-205-2000).
    Any submissions that contain confidential business information 
(CBI) must also conform with the requirements of section 201.6 of the 
Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 201.6). Section 
201.6 of the rules requires that the cover of the document and the 
individual pages be clearly marked as to whether they are the 
``confidential'' or ``non-confidential'' version, and that the 
confidential business information be clearly identified by means of 
brackets. All written submissions, except for confidential business 
information, will be made available for inspection by interested 
parties.
    In its request letter, the Committee stated that it intends to make 
the Commission's report available to the public in its entirety, and 
asked that the Commission not include any confidential business 
information in the report that the Commission sends to the Committee. 
Any confidential business information received by the Commission in 
this investigation and used in preparing this report will not be 
published in a manner that would reveal the operations of the firm 
supplying the information.

    By order of the Commission.
    Issued: January 28, 2011.
