WASHINGTON — The House passed a broad trade bill Tuesday night that would benefit companies making denim apparel in sub-Saharan Africa, a region that has been losing orders because of a punitive provision in a U.S. trade preference program.
The multipronged bill could also help domestic textile producers boost their cotton fabric exports to the Dominican Republic. Additionally, it gives more flexibility in the use of third-country fabrics to U.S. apparel manufacturers that produce certain cotton bottoms in the Dominican Republic.
