China curtain safeguard to be considered
By Staff -- Home Textiles Today, 7/15/2005 11:22:00 AM
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Government’s Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA) has decided to consider a safeguard that would limit the importation of curtains and drapery from China.
The petition, filed by a coalition of textiles companies and a union representing textiles and apparel workers, was resubmitted this week after having been rejected due to a technicality.
CITA will now publish a notice in the Federal Register seeking comments on the proposed safeguard which will last 30 days. A decision will be made within 60 days of the comment period’s close.
If CITA does find evidence of market disruption, it will request consultations with China. As of the date that consultations are requested, the committee will put in place a safeguard or quota to limit imports from China.
