Join the Canadian Apparel Federation and Canada Border Services Agency for an update on the Least Developed Countries Program, and discussion of how the program is monitored by Canadian customs officials.
Since the introduction of the Market Access Initiative for the Least Developed Countries in 2003 many apparel importers have claimed preferential tariff treatment under the General Preferential Tariff and Least Developed Country Tariff (LDCT). The LDC program provides preferential market access to products manufactured in LDCs. Historically countries such as Bangladesh and Cambodia have made significant gains in the Canadian market.
