ABSTRACT

Textile and Apparel Sectors Disagree on Certain Provisions of the Proposed U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) Agreement [March 5, 2019]   [open pdf - 592KB]

From the Document: "The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is the proposed replacement of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which entered into force in 1994 and gradually eliminated tariffs and quotas on regionally made textile and apparel products. The proposed agreement would make several changes in rules affecting textiles and apparel among the three countries. U.S. textile manufacturers and the apparel and retail industries have expressed overall support for the USMCA. Still, certain provisions have been controversial, and textile producers and the apparel sector hold divergent views. If Congress considers the USMCA, its textile and apparel provisions may draw particular scrutiny."
