Investigation of Chinese cotton textiles, knit fabrics imports extended till Nov 30

The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA) today announced that it is extending until November 30, 2005, the period for making a determination on whether to request consultations with China regarding imports of cotton and man-made fiber sweaters (category 345/645/646), cotton and man-made fiber dressing gowns and robes (category 350/650), men's and boys' wool trousers (category 447), and knit fabric (category 222).

“The U.S. has not hesitated to use the textile safeguard mechanism as permitted under China's WTO accession agreement; however, we are seeking a longer-term solution that will permit the orderly development of textile and apparel trade,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce and CITA Chairman James C. Leonard, III.

“We have made progress in our consultations with the Chinese government and will meet again soon to continue those consultations. Today's action demonstrates our intent to consult in good faith, but we will not accept a bad deal for U.S. industry.”

Background:

The four product categories for which the determination period has been extended are subject to requests for safeguard relief based on the existence of market disruption and/or the threat of market disruption that were filed by The American Manufacturing Trade Action Coalition, The National Council of Textile Organizations, the National Textile Association, SEAMS and UNITE HERE (SEAMS was not a party to the knit fabricrequest).
