In a statement issued on the same day, the American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA) welcomed the conclusion of bilateral NAFTA negotiations with Mexico and stressed that Canada should be part of a final agreement: “The conclusion of the U.S.-Mexico talks is a positive step in NAFTA negotiations, but it is important that the updated agreement remains trilateral. At the same time, we encourage the administration to communicate the details of the agreement so that the business community can verify its impact on North American supply chains and share feedback with the administration and Congress… Any update to the agreement must continue to support these U.S. jobs, promote trade ties and be fully implemented to be considered a success. In this context, we are deeply concerned that there is a late issue of denunciation or denunciation of the existing agreement. According to Inside US Trade, during the third round of NAFTA renegotiation (September 23-27, 2017), the United States proposed several possible changes to existing textile and apparel rules in the agreement: these apparel trade agreements operate under a “Filn-Forward” policy of origin. The “Filn forward” rule is sometimes referred to as “triple transformation” because it requires the spider, weaving or sorting of the fabric and assembling all the components that must be done in a NAFTA country. The final text of the USMCA is expected to be signed by the leaders of Canada, the United States and Mexico on November 30, 2019 or before November 30, 2019.

Mexico is expected to ratify the agreement by December 1, 2018, and the United States and Canada are expected to follow in the first half of 2019. The treaty, once ratified, will replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. According to Inside U.S. Trade, the National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO), which represents the U.S. textile industry, says it is “encouraged by USTR`s information regarding the strengthening of rules of origin for textiles and clothing in the agreement announced with Mexico.
