The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) implemented an updated international trade policy to support AAFA's ambitious legislative agenda and guide day-to-day advocacy efforts.
The updated AAFA International Trade Policy was approved by a recent vote of the AAFA Board of Directors and is comprised for four main principles:
- Secure access to global markets and global supply chains through the elimination or reduction of duties and other trade barriers.
- Promote best practices to ensure that goods are produced in a socially responsible, safe, and sustainable manner.
- Ensure that governments take the necessary steps to protect and enforce intellectual property rights.
- Foster trade facilitation policies that support transparency, predictability, and harmonization.
