WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is ramping up initiatives to boost U.S. manufacturing and investment in the second half of the year, and the fashion industry is a key component of the government’s Made in America blueprint.
From supporting U.S. textile and apparel manufacturing interests in trade negotiations and resolving industry-specific trade issues with other countries to holding a first-ever foreign investment summit aimed at attracting new business, government agencies are helping promote the fashion industry’s Made in USA cachet.
