U.S. Secretary of Commerce Carlos M. Gutierrez and U.S. Trade Representative Susan C. Schwab have appointed David Trumbull to serve on the Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Textiles and Clothing (ITAC 13) as a representative from the National Textile Association (NTA). Trumbull will join 36 other members of ITAC 13 as an advisor on U.S. trade policy and negotiating objectives relating to textiles and clothing.
Trumbull has been employed by the NTA in Boston since 1994, where he assists the domestic U.S. textile industry with his expertise in U.S. textile trade laws and regulation and international textile agreements.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, “The ITACs are an integral link between industry and the U.S. Government. The industry advisors serving on the ITACs provide valuable input as the Administration advances its trade agenda to improve economic opportunities for America’s businesses, workers and consumers.”
The National Textile Association, founded in 1854, is the nation’s oldest and largest association of fabric-making companies.
