The rollback of tariffs on Chinese imports could be more than just rumblings.
At the United States Fashion Industry Association’s (USFIA) Apparel Importers Trade and Transportation Conference in New York City Thursday, David Spooner, partner at Barnes & Thornburg, said there’s truth to the rollback news.
“I think it’s clear that the administration does not want to, or is very reluctant, to impose tariffs on list 4B. It’s no coincidence, of course, that the administration put off tariffs on [apparel and textiles] and consumer electronic products until the very end. And it’s no coincidence that at least for a large portion of those goods, the administration has continued to defer goods,” Spooner said.
