The U.S. Embassy in Ulaanbaatar, Ministry of Industry and Trade of Mongolia & the Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry launched a Handicraft Agreement under the U.S. General System Preferences Program on July 7 at 11:00am.

The event took place at the Round Hall of the Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry. During the event certain products made by handicraft producers were exhibited.

This program allows Mongolian handicraft textile producers to export certain certified hand-loomed and folklore handmade products to the U.S. duty free.

In order to get a duty-free entry the products will have to be certified by the Mongolian Government that they are hand-loomed and of a folkloric nature.

“Certified hand-loomed and folklore” textile articles are:
(1) hand-loomed (i.e., not made on a power-driven loom) fabrics that are the product of a cottage industry;

(2) hand-made (i.e., hand-cut or hand-sewn (i.e., not made on a treadle machine or any other type of sewing machine)) products of a cottage industry made from such hand-loomed fabrics; or

(3) traditional folklore textile products that have been made entirely by hand from such hand-loomed fabrics.
