American Apparel & Footwear Association President and CEO Rick Helfenbein welcomed the announcement that NAFTA would continue to be a trilateral agreement in a statement today.
“This shows that all three countries recognize the importance of the trilateral trading arrangement that has been fostered and supported by NAFTA during the past 24 years,” said Helfenbein. “We look forward to reviewing the text in detail with our members and determining the impact it will have on the highly integrated North American apparel, footwear, and textile supply chain. We also remind the Administration of the need to seamlessly implement this new agreement so that companies are able to adjust to the new trading rules.”
