Government eliminates import duty on key textile inputs

18
Jun '09
The Government of Canada in consultation with all interested parties and on request from concerned industries has eliminated import duties on raw materials used in manufacturing of textile goods.

The textile inputs on which zero duty has been implemented are;

- Hexamethylene tetramine
- Certain cotton yarns for use in the manufacture of towels
- Certain woven fabrics for use as knee lining in the manufacture of trousers
- Certain woven fabrics for use in the manufacture of dresses, skirts, vests, blouses, tops and scarves
- Certain viscose rayon yarn for use in the manufacture of mattress ticking
- Certain nylon staple fibres for use in the manufacture of footwear
- Certain narrow woven “hook and loop” pile fabrics
- Certain three and four layer woven and knit fabrics for use in the manufacture of recreational

This has been done in order to increase the competitive capabilities of Canadian textile manufacturers and is undertaken and reviewed periodically. As a result of this order the government stands to loose Can $808,000 in revenue per annum.
