February 13th, 2018 / By: / Industry News, News

Negotiators from the United States, Canada and Mexico met to discuss textiles in Washington, D.C., on December 15, 2017 and in Montreal on January 23–28, 2018. The first two rounds focused on technical discussions and exchanging information versus substantive decision-
making. In the third round, the United States tabled text on rules of origin, including eliminating certain derogations from the yarn forward rule. Although the USTR has not publicly released details, news outlets reported the United States tabled a full phase-out of the NAFTA TPL
system.
