SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: The
Secretary of Commerce and the Advisor
to the President overseeing the Office of
Economic Initiatives serve as the co-
chairs of the Advisory Board. In
addition to the co-chairs, the Advisory
Board comprises 25 members that
represent various sectors of the
economy. The Board advises the
National Council for the American
Worker.
The December meeting will include
updates on implementation of
recommendations from the September
meeting and discussions of new
recommendations under each of the four
main goals of the Advisory Board:
Develop a Campaign to Promote
Multiple Pathways to Career Success.
Companies, workers, parents, and
policymakers have traditionally
assumed that a university degree is the
best, or only, path to a middle-class
career. Employers and job seekers
should be aware of multiple career
pathways and skill development
opportunities outside of traditional 4-
year degrees.
Increase Data Transparency to
Better Match American Workers with
American Jobs. High-quality,
transparent, and timely data can
significantly improve the ability of
employers, students, job seekers,
education providers, and policymakers
to make informed choices about
education and employment—especially
for matching education and training
programs to in-demand jobs and the
skills needed to fill them.
Modernize Candidate Recruitment
and Training Practices. Employers often
struggle to fill job vacancies, yet their
hiring practices may actually reduce the
pool of qualified job applicants. To
acquire a talented workforce, employers
must better identify the skills needed for
specific jobs and communicate those
needs to education providers, job
seekers, and students.
Measure and Encourage Employer-
led Training Investments. The size,
scope, and impacts of education and
skills training investments are still not
fully understood. There is a lack of
consistent data on company balance
sheets and in federal statistics. Business
and policy makers need to know how
much is spent on training, the types of
workers receiving training, and the long-
term value of the money and time spent
in classroom and on-the-job training.

decrease in sales or production of each
petitioning firm.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Background
On June 3, 2019, Commerce published
a notice of opportunity to request an
administrative review of the
antidumping duty order on cold-drawn
mechanical tubing from Switzerland for
the period of review November 22,
2017, through May 31, 2019.
1
Pursuant
to a request from ArcelorMittal Tubular
Products LLC, Michigan Seamless Tube,
LLC, PTC Alliance Corp., and Webco
Industries, Inc., (the petitioners),
2
in
accordance with section 751(a) of the
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act),
and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), Commerce
initiated an administrative review of the
antidumping duty order on cold-drawn
mechanical tubing from Switzerland on
July 29, 2019, with respect to three
companies: Benteler Rothrist AG
(Benteler Rothrist); Mubea
Pra
¨zisionsstahlrohr AG (Mubea), and
Jansen AG (Jansen).
3
On October 23,
2019, the petitioners timely withdrew
their request for an administrative
review with respect to all entities for
which they had requested a review.
4
Rescission of Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1),
Commerce will rescind an
administrative review, in whole or in
part, if the party that requested the
review withdraws its request within 90
days of the publication date of the
notice of initiation of the requested
review. The petitioners, who were the
only parties to request a review,
withdrew their request within the 90-
day deadline. Accordingly, we are
rescinding the administrative review of
cold-drawn mechanical tubing from
Switzerland for the period November
22, 2017, through May 31, 2019, in its
entirety.
Assessment
Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs
and Border Protection (CBP) to assess
antidumping duties on all appropriate
entries of cold-drawn mechanical tubing
from Switzerland. Antidumping duties
shall be assessed at rates equal to the
cash deposit rate of estimated
antidumping duties required at the time
of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse,
for consumption, in accordance with 19
CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends
to issue appropriate assessment
instructions to CBP 15 days after
publication of this notice in the Federal
Register.
Notification to Importers
This notice serves as the only
reminder to importers whose entries
will be liquidated as a result of this
rescission notice, of their responsibility
under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a
certificate regarding the reimbursement
of antidumping duties prior to
liquidation of the relevant entries
during this review period. Failure to
comply with this requirement could
result in the presumption that
reimbursement of the antidumping
duties occurred and the subsequent
assessment of double antidumping
duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative
Protective Order
This notice also serves as the only
reminder to all parties subject to
administrative protective order (APO) of
their responsibility concerning the
disposition of proprietary information
disclosed under APO in accordance
with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely
written notification of the return or
destruction of APO materials or
conversion to judicial protective order is
hereby requested. Failure to comply
with the regulations and terms of an
APO is a sanctionable violation.
Notification to Interested Parties
This notice is issued and published in
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR
351.213(d)(4).
Dated: November 1, 2019.
