USFIA's post-hearing comments on 3rd list of China tariffs

11
Sep '18
Following the Office of the US Trade Representative’s hearing on the third proposed list of $200 billion in tariffs, the US Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) filed comments urging removal of certain apparel items and goods from the list and explaining how tariffs will harm US consumers and jobs without solving the intellectual property right challenges with China.

Proposed tariffs on many items manufactured and sold by USFIA members will directly impact US consumers, especially during the back-to-school and holiday shopping seasons, it said.

USFIA’s member companies and consumers are particularly concerned over the proposed tariffs on hats and headwear; luggage and handbags; and leather and faux leather apparel and products, according to a press release from the association.

Its members are also concerned about the proposed tariffs on textile products including felt and nonwovens and certain yarns, specialty textile products including embroidery, cookware, picture frames, plastic articles, certain electrical equipment including vacuum cleaners and television sets, paper products, wood articles, aluminium products including sanitary ware, and feathers used for stuffing.
