US Postpones Decisions On Curtain And Drapery Imports

James A. Morrissey, Washington Correspondent

The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (CITA) reports it can't at this time determine whether there is justification for the United States to pursue negotiations to impose quotas on imports of Chinese curtains and drapes. As a result, the inter-agency textile trade watchdog committee will postpone a decision as to whether it will seek consultations with the Chinese government until November 30.

On June 22, a coalition of US textile manufacturers and labor petitioned CITA to impose safeguard quotas on imports of draperies and curtains, charging that the imports were resulting in market disruption. CITA accepted the petition and called for public comments. That was followed by a 60-day evaluation period that expired October 17. CITA ordered an extension, because it is continuing to evaluate production data. At the time the industry/labor petition was filed, it cited a 32-percent increase in imports of curtains and draperies - a significant growth rate, but not as high as many of the other products where safeguard quotas are being sought.
