The U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is undertaking a comprehensive study on the health, competiveness, and the contribution of the U.S. textile, apparel, and footwear industry to the U.S. economy. Among the topics included are:
- Current issues and challenges, and what can be done to support the industry.
- Effectiveness of the Berry Amendment and other Buy-American provisions.
The U.S. Department of Commerce conducted a similar assessment in 2003, “U.S. Textile and Apparel Industries: An Industrial Base Assessment.” A link to that study is below.
