B) The second one mandates performance reviews of existing U.S. trade agreements by the Secretary of Commerce and the United States Trade Representative (USTR), in consultation with the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Attorney General, and the Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy.

“The findings of the performance reviews shall help guide United States trade policy and trade negotiations.
