NCTO applauds tariffs, asks for further action

June 29th, 2018 / By: / Industry News

The National Council of Textile Organization (NCTO) praised the Trump administration’s announcement imposing Section 301 tariffs on China related to the transfer of American technology and intellectual property, a recent release from NCTO says.

“As per our recommendation, NCTO is pleased that almost all textile machinery products were removed from the final list of tariff lines subject to immediate 301 duties, because tariffs on textile machinery hinder the competitiveness of U.S. textile manufacturers,” said NCTO President & CEO Auggie Tantillo.
NCTO has also called on the administration to include finished textile and apparel products on any future lists of imports from China to be made subject to Section 301 tariffs.

NCTO is a Washington, D.C.-based trade association that represents domestic textile manufacturers, including artificial and synthetic filament and fiber producers.
