The hottest demand of American textile industry on

  • Detail

Editor's note: it will be less than five months before December 31st, 2008, when the United States will cancel the textile quota restrictions on China that have lasted for three years

2005, the public opinion of American textile manufacturers criticized China's textile industry for dumping at low prices, accusing that the influx of Chinese textiles threatened the survival of the American textile industry. Therefore, after consultations between China and the United States, China has imposed quota restrictions on 21 categories of textile products. With the approach of January 1 next year, American textile and garment manufacturers began to form a lobby group to monitor China's textile imports in 2009

U.S. textile industry seeks protection measures

according to a Wall Street report on August 6, 2008, U.S. textile and clothing manufacturers hope that the government will formulate new protection measures. This will be a touchstone to test the attitude of the next US president on foreign trade policy

it is reported that considering that China may counter the US practice of extending the quota period through the World Trade Organization (WTO), the US industry managers are gradually clamping the samples from the jaws to the root to promote the adoption of an action plan for monitoring the import of Chinese textiles. According to this plan, if the United States finds that China is dumping textiles at low prices, it can take measures to restrict imports. But at present, the Bush administration is not interested in considering this issue, which will be left to the next owner of the White House to solve

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is a free trade skeptic. He has shown that he is willing to use an old special bill to protect industries facing competitive pressure from China. Obama's spokesman said: "Obama will implement this law if Congress instructs him to do so.". John McCain, the Republican presidential candidate, is a supporter of free trade. It is estimated that he will not support any behavior that will create new trade barriers. A McCain campaign spokesman declined to comment

a bipartisan group expressed support for us industries to strive for new protection. Members of this group include democratic representative johnspratt of South Carolina (J can analyze ohnspratt) and Republican Representative howardcoble of North Carolina

U.S. trade groups attacked the new monitoring measures

many U.S. importers and retailers oppose the U.S. government's plan to implement monitoring measures on China's imports of ready-made clothes in order to monitor whether China sells ready-made clothes into the United States at unfair prices. The measures to monitor the import of ready-made clothes from China were written in the draft report of the Appropriations Committee of the house of representatives together with the commercial, judicial and scientific appropriations bill at the end of June this year. This monitoring will increase the uncertainty of future trade

in a recent letter sent to the U.S. Congress by the American ready to wear and Footwear Association (AAFA), the National Retail Association (NRF), the American retail Leaders Association (Rila) and the American Association of textile and ready to wear importers (USA-ITA), it was stated that the plan to be firmly placed in the head groove of the pedicle screw would have a negative impact on trade, and the industry should be consulted more. If the opinions of relevant people are consulted or considered, the Appropriations Committee of the house of representatives will understand that one of the important characteristics of rock mechanical properties of the monitoring measures is controversial, and Congress should not support or promote it. At the same time, it is pointed out that the largest garment production capacity in the United States simply cannot compete with Asian countries, so American garment manufacturers are unlikely to be damaged by the low-cost imported garments from Asia

erikautor, an international trade lawyer consultant of the nationalretailfederation, said that we think all these protectionist measures are completely unnecessary

According to the statistics of the U.S. textile trade office, in the first half of this year, the U.S. imports of textiles and clothing from China reached US $13.834 billion, a decrease of 2.43% over the same period last year. As of August 11, the average customs clearance rate of our limited products exported to the United States has only reached 34%, and the customs clearance of all products has not reached 60%. Therefore, it can be considered that the quota will not be used up before the expiration of the U.S. quota restrictions on China's textile imports on December 31, which indicates that there will be no sharp increase in China's garment exports to the United States in 2009, as in 2005
