On January 21, 2014, the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) filed comments with the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) for their investigation on trade and investment performance as well as possible changes to the African Growth & Opportunity Act (AGOA). In our comments, drafted with assistance from USFIA Washington Counsel David Spooner with Squire Sanders, we recommend prompt and long-term renewal; long-term renewal and expansion of the Third-Country Fabric provision; and expanded trade capacity-building programs.
