The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) and the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Textiles and Apparel (CCCT) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which will facilitate the exchange of trade and investment information between AAFA and CCCT and their respective memberships.
Signed during a seminar on U.S. and China trade relations in Washington, DC, the MOU will also create a forum through which to address issues of concern, including: product safety, labeling, retail, and intellectual property.
China is the top supplier of both footwear and apparel to the U.S. market. China is also a growing market for U.S. made and branded apparel and footwear.
