WASHINGTON — Newly appointed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano will play key roles in shaping and implementing trade and maritime cargo security policies affecting billions of dollars worth of apparel and textile imports.
President-elect Barack Obama named Clinton and Napolitano to his cabinet on Monday; both must still be confirmed by the Senate. While the State and Homeland Security departments do not directly negotiate trade agreements, a duty fulfilled by the U.S. Trade Representative, both agencies have a hand in trade and global commerce policies.
