WASHINGTON — The U.S. is poised to impose quotas unilaterally on 41 apparel and textile categories from Vietnam and embargo swimwear imports as early as Friday if an agreement is not reached today.
In an advance copy of a government notice obtained by WWD, the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements said it would impose the quotas retroactively to Jan. 1 and immediately embargo imports of Vietnamese swimsuits, which already surpassed the proposed quota limits in the first two months of the year.
