Haiti apparel exports gain unlimited access

13
Dec '06
At last week's 109th Congress, bill to grant unlimited access to Haiti apparel product exports was approved.

Due to excessive cheap garment imports, US textile industry is suffering greatly, leaving more than 100,000 workers unemployed.

National Cotton Council (NCC) and National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO) opposed this proposal explaining that in an attempt to help Haiti, the US has made it a hub for transshipments from countries like China.

Cass Johnson, President, NCTO, stressed that Haiti is the lowest wage apparel producer and said “As a result, its apparel exports to the US have grown by 29 percent during the last year to 240 million square meters equivalent. By value, Haiti's exports are up 11 percent and now total $432 million. This is in sharp contrast to the CAFTA countries which have seen their apparel exports to the US fall by 10 percent.”
