AAFA Reiterates Support for Keeping Berry Amendment off the Table in Trade Talks

On October 27, 2014, the American Apparel and Footwear Association ("AAFA") sent a letter to United States Trade Representative Michael Froman urging the U.S. government to keep the Berry Amendment off the table during free trade agreement ("FTA") negotiations. The letter came in response to a position paper on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership ("T-TIP") FTA from the European Apparel and Textile Confederation ("EURATEX"), which claimed that the Berry Amendment encouraged "discriminatory treatment."

The AAFA letter is available HERE.
