MEDELLIN, COLOMBIA — Colombia has introduced a $5 a kilo temporary duty for all textile, garment and footwear imports to tame a flood of sub-valued Chinese imports into the country, which have risen 200 percent since 2010, according to Carlos Eduardo Botero, executive president of top industry association Inexmoda.
“The measure has been signed and will come into effect next week,” Botero said in an interview on the sidelines of the Colombiatex textiles fair held here until Friday.
