US And China Discuss New Textile Quotas

James A. Morrissey, Washington Correspondent

The United States and China have entered into consultations based on US plans to impose quotas on seven more textile and clothing product categories. The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements has determined that imports in those seven categories present a threat of market disruption. Products involved are cotton trousers, cotton knit shirts, underwear, man-made fiber knit shirts, mens and boys man-made fiber woven shirts and cotton combed yarn. Under World Trade Organization rules, both parties have 90 days to reach a bilateral agreement, and failing that, the United States may impose a growth rate of 7.5 percent for the remainder of the year starting with the date consultations were requested.
