NEW YORK — Textile and apparel sourcing executives are entering uncertain times when it comes to predicting the impact of U.S. trade policy, a situation that is likely to persist until a new administration takes office next year.
Matt Priest, deputy assistant secretary for textiles and apparel at the Commerce Department and chairman of the interagency Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, addressed the state of the country's trade policy during a presentation at the Fashion Institute of Technology here on Thursday. Priest also sought to convey the situation sourcing executives will face as trade provisions with countries such as China and Vietnam come to an end.
