Fighting on the Frontlines of the Trade War: Strategies for Minimizing the Impact of the New Tariffs on Your Business
The U.S.-China trade war has reached the fashion industry. Starting September 24, 2018, the Trump Administration will impose tariffs of 10 percent on many textile and fashion products; these tariffs will increase to 25 percent on January 1, 2019. Join the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) for a series of webinars to help you understand—and minimize—the impact of the new tariffs on imports from China on your business.
These webinars are free for USFIA members and affiliates!

Are the new 10-25 percent tariffs on Chinese imports hitting your products in advance of the upcoming holiday season? It’s possible to get some reprieve—if you act quickly. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has implemented a product exclusion process by which companies may request the exclusion from these duties on one or more products on the list subject to the Section 301 tariffs. Join the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) and USFIA Associate Member Arent Fox for a 30-minute webinar to learn the what, how, and when of the exclusion process—including an overview of the specific forms and guidelines, the deadlines for submitting the requests, and how to file responses to posted requests.
