WASHINGTON — Textile and apparel imports to the U.S. continued their long decline in August, with Vietnam posting the only increase among major suppliers.
The Commerce Department’s Office of Textiles & Apparel said Friday industry imports fell 9.8 percent to 4.2 billion square meter equivalents in August compared with a year earlier. The total volume of imports of textiles and apparel to the U.S. in August was the highest for any month this year, but in year-over-year comparisons imports have been declining since February 2008.
