WASHINGTON — The import picture in June and the first half of the year told the same story: China is seemingly unstoppable.
China is still muscling out its competition and driving the rest of the world’s trade in apparel and textile down, while the domestic textile and fiber industry fights to impede its explosive growth. Imports of apparel and textiles from China rose 54.9 percent in June versus a year ago and ballooned by 89.5 percent in the first half to 3.59 billion square meters equivalent, according to the Commerce Department’s trade report released Thursday.
