Textiles needs to be added to China tariffs list, feels National Council of Textile Organizations

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2018-06-27 13:00:00 – Washington

NCTO president and CEO Auggie Tantillo quoted that, “NCTO is pleased that some textile products are on the second list. It would have a greater deterring effect, however, if more textile and apparel end products were included. As such, NCTO looks forward to working closely with the Trump administration to refine it.”

He represented a group of textiles-related organizations last month certfying in favor of adding textiles to the original tariffs lineup. The new list of products being eyed for tariffs must also pass through a public comment period.

The National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO) is renewing its call for Chinese textiles to be added to the Trump administration’s new tariffs roster.

The administration announced that additional 25% tariffs will fall on 1,102 products beginning in July. It also released a second list of products that could become subject to tariffs. Home textiles were not on either list, although most types of textiles machinery were included a move, supported by the NCTO and now, the organization is urging the government to go farther.
