Save Act garners more support from US legislators
Apr '12
The Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has announced that two US senators and a representative have committed to support the Save Our Industries Act (Save Act), when it is tabled in the US Congress.

During a meeting with Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS), who are Chairman and senior member, respectively, of the Subcommittee on International Trade, Customs and Competitiveness, have given their assurance to support the act, the DFA said.

US Representative Don Manzullo, who is Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific under the Committee on Foreign Affairs, has also agreed to support the proposed law, the DFA added.

The Save Act proposes to allow Philippine apparel products to enter the US duty-free, provided those garments are made using US-made fabrics.

The DFA said the passing of the Save Act would be beneficial for both the Philippines and the US. It said the passing of the Bill would create a new export opportunity for the US textile industry that could lead to thousands new employment opportunities in the US textile sector in a short duration.
