CAF recommends viable rule of origin to trade with Japan

29
May '12
Canadian Apparel Federation (CAF) Executive Director, Bob Kirke, appeared before the House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade on May 10, 2012, to comment on a potential Canada-Japan Bilateral Trade Agreement.

In addition to expressing CAF's support for free trade with Japan, he focused on issues concerning the likely rule of origin.

He noted that the apparel industry has experienced numerous problems with the yarn-forward rule of origin for apparel established under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). CAF supports a Canada-Japan Bilateral Trade Agreement but recommends proceeding with a commercially viable rule of origin.

The Canadian Apparel Federation (CAF) is the national association for Canada's apparel industry. CAF stands up for the industry, and is a reliable source for information and advice on national and international issues, and for industry-specific services. CAF is made up of firms from across the country, and represents the entire industry - from small suppliers to national brands and vertically integrated retailers.
