GENEVA — Japan has removed all applied tariffs that were as high as 14.2 percent on nine apparel products, including embroidery, bras and girdles, but overall import duties in the sector remain higher than in many other industrial goods, a World Trade Organization report said.
During a two-day review of Japan’s trade regime, some textile and apparel exporters, such as Indonesia, critically noted that the tariff rates for textiles and apparel, and for leather products and footwear, “are significantly higher” than the average applied tariff rate for industrial goods, which stood at 6.3 percent in 2012.
