Senators, retailers urge more flexible apparel rules in Asia-Pacific deal
from The Hill
A bipartisan group of senators is urging U.S. trade officials to adopt more flexible rules of origin and gain better market access for apparel as part of an Asia-Pacific trade deal. A letter signed by 15 senators — seven Democrats and eight Republicans — urges President Barack Obama to consider integrating rules on textiles and apparel into broader discussions on all other industrial goods in the ongoing negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement.
