Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements is accepting comments through June 26 on a request to remove certain ring spun single yarns of micro modal fibers from the CAFTA-DR short supply list. These yarns were added to this list after the conclusion of negotiations and before the date the agreement entered into force to give effect to a May 2005 short supply designation under the African Growth and Opportunity Act, the Andean Trade Promotion and Drug Eradication Act and the Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act. A domestic company now claims it is capable of supplying this yarn in commercial quantities in a timely manner and that the company that originally requested the short supply designation under AGOA, ATPDEA and CBTPA supports the yarn’s removal from the CAFTA-DR short supply list.
