“The USMCA advises against relying on inexpensive Asian substances and tariffs on non-originating yarns and fabrics (`tariff preference levels` or DETPs) are limited to 10 percent of the volume of North American apparel to qualify for duty-free treatment,” Gantz wrote. “In addition, other amendments to the USMCA require that sewing threads, ladle fabrics, narrow elastics, and coated fabrics used in the manufacture of apparel be manufactured in North America so that these products are treated as originating and are therefore subject to duty-free treatment.” Note: the new trade agreement is called CUSMA (Canada-United States-Mexico) in Canada and T-MEC (El Tratado entre México, Estados Unidos y Canadá) in Mexico. However, respondents continue to show little interest in direct investment in the SSA region. About 27 percent of respondents say the temporary nature of AGOA and uncertainty about the future of the agreement have discouraged them. The updated version of USMCA, launched on July 1, has a lot of useful changes that should make all parties quite happy. As far as the economic impact is concerned, it is now a broadly balanced agreement for both the textile and clothing sectors, starting with the debate on rules of origin. In addition, the changes to the DTPs will not have a major impact on trade flows, with the main change being due to U.S. exports of cotton and chemical fibres to Canada. . .
