Dear [NAFTA Trade Ministers]
The undersigned companies represent the full range of the textile, apparel, and retail industry in North America.
We are writing to express our strong support for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and our strong opposition to any efforts that would terminate or weaken the agreement.
We support modernizing NAFTA to enhance the competitiveness of our industry at home and around the world. We oppose modifications to NAFTA that would eliminate current flexibilities or add new restrictions in the textile and apparel rules of origin - including on the tariff preference levels (TPLs) – that undermine the competitiveness of our integrated supply chain and adversely affect the entire industry.
