AAFA applauds Andean-Caribbean trade moves
October 3, 2008,
Arlington, Va. – The American Apparel & Footwear Association commended Congress for its approval of textile and fabric trade provisions concerning the Caribbean Basin and the Andean region.
“These programs were urgently needed,” said AAFA president and ceo Kevin Burke. “About $250 million worth of U.S. cotton and textiles were exported to the four Andean countries of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru last year. American jobs depend on fair, two-way trade with the Andean region and other developing nations worldwide.”
