The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) recently signed an agreement with the Association of Industries of Haiti (ADIH) for collaboration on industry-related issues. The agreement was signed at the inaugural day of an AAFA conference titled ‘Supply Chain Innovation: The Key to Success in the New Retail Dynamic’ in Washington, D.C.

“Haiti is a special partner in the global apparel and footwear value chain and continues to inspire our industry as we formalize the relationship with the Association of Industries of Haiti,” an AAFA press release quoted president and CEO Rick Helfenbein as saying.

“ADIH is honored to work with an organization as respected as the American Apparel & Footwear Association, which represents many of the great brands ADIH members do business with as part of an integrated supply chain,” said ADIH president Georges B Sassine.

Nearly 55,000 workers are employed in the industry in Haiti, contributing to approximately $871 million worth of annual exports to the United States. (DS)
