TGA Continues to Push for Relief for Industry
On March 21, TGA joined dozens of organizations in urging President Trump and Congress of the critical need for financial support for the industry during these trying times. The letter followed a March 20 letter from the travel goods, apparel, and footwear industries urging the Trump administration to take quick action to help the industry, including access to capital and credit and tariff relief. Moreover, TGA has convinced U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to provide temporarily deferral of tariff payments on a case-by-case basis for the industry (Contact TGA’s Nate Herman for more information). TGA continues to work on a longer-term blanket duty deferral that we hope will be announced shortly.
