The Secretary of State to the Swiss Minister (Peter)

Sir: I have the honor to inform you that the laws to which the last sentence of Article II of the trade agreement signed today refers are mandatory laws and include those requiring the imposition under certain circumstances of special duties or charges such as anti-dumping duties, countervailing duties imposed on products by reason of foreign bounties on the manufacture, production or export thereof, additional duties for undervaluation, additional duties for failure to mark imported articles with the name of the country of origin, and compensating taxes imposed on imported articles by reason of a component of a kind which would be subject to an internal tax if processed within the country.

Accept [etc.]

Cordell Hull
