US textiles and apparel backs implementation of USMCA

The National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO), representing the full spectrum of US  textiles from fibre though to finished sewn products, has issued a statement with textile executives stressing the critical importance of moving ahead with the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) and lauding US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer for setting 1 July as the implementation date now that the US has taken the necessary final procedural steps.

“We commend Ambassador Lighthizer for moving forward with USMCA, a critical trade deal that will greatly benefit the U.S. textile industry at a time when domestic producers--facing significant challenges due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic--have mobilized to convert their production lines to manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline workers during this crisis,” said NCTO President and CEO Kim Glas.
