Description

This report summarizes the discussions during the APEC Public-Private Dialogue to Advance Understanding on Non-tariff Measures (NTMs) in Textile and Garment Industry held in Ha Noi, Viet Nam on 13-14 April this year.

 

The project is aimed at the following objectives: (i) Exploring and stocktaking the application of NTMs in Textile and Garment in existing RTAs/FTAs in APEC, other regions as well as in the WTO to identify and bridge the gaps among APEC members in the issues in efforts to realize the FTAAP; (ii) Provide capacity building to APEC  governmental officials on NTMs in Textile and Garment to deal with NTMs negotiation in their on-going RTAs/FTAs negotiation, as well as to regulate NTMs in Textile and Garment sector in reality; and (iii) Making recommendations to CTI for further consideration and action on this issue.
