Blue jeans imports from the Western Hemisphere increased 43.46 percent in the nine-month period. Mexico’s imports increased by 46.53 percent.

The Dominican Republic-Central the America-United States Free Trade Agreement’s western hemisphere supply chain for textiles and apparel is a key pillar of the collaboration between the US and the nations of the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement. The CAFTA-DR origin rules give the industry the security it needs to develop and grow operations in a way that benefits both US employees and those in the region. Over the last decade, the US textile sector has spent more than $20 billion in the US and billions more in the hemisphere to expand economic prospects in the US and the region.
