AAFA continues call for elimination of trade barriers worldwide

The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) released the following statement regarding the publication of the 2011 National Trade Estimate Report. The NTE Report is an annual review coordinated by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) of foreign trade barriers faced by U.S. companies.

“Knocking down barriers to trade at home and around the world improves America's competitiveness in the global marketplace,” said AAFA Vice President for International Trade Nate Herman. “This report, which outlines many of the trade barriers faced by U.S. brands and exporters, can be a valuable tool in achieving President Barack Obama's goal of doubling U.S. exports by 2015.”

“The Obama Administration and Congress must continue to aggressively pursue a variety of opportunities to open markets both at home and abroad,” Herman said. “Passing the longpending free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia, and Panama and completing negotiations for a commercially-meaningful Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement will move us one step closer to achieving that laudable goal.”

“The U.S. apparel and footwear industry supports more than one million jobs here in the United States because of international trade,” said Herman. “U.S. brands are the best in the world. In fact, much of our recent growth has been abroad, especially in China. Having a 21st century trade policy that opens more markets to U.S. apparel and footwear brands will allow us to reach more customers and create more U.S. jobs.”
