Reports on possible modifications to US-Bahrain FTA rules

Aug '10
The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) released a public version of its report concerning proposed modifications to U.S.-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement (FTA) rules of origin.

Certain Combed Cotton Yarns: Effect of Modification of U.S.-Bahrain FTA Rules of Origin, was requested by the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) in a letter received on February 12, 2010. The USITC's confidential report was submitted to the USTR on July 12, 2010.

As requested, the USITC, an independent, nonpartisan, factfinding federal agency, provided advice on the probable effect of proposed modifications to the U.S.-Bahrain FTA rules of origin on U.S. trade and on domestic production for certain textile products.

The USITC's analysis indicates that for certain home furnishings made with certain combed, compacted, single, ring-spun cotton yarns, the proposed rule of origin changes could result in a large increase in U.S. trade under the U.S.-Bahrain FTA, but have little or no effect on total U.S. trade and little or no effect on U.S. producers of the affected articles.
