“Today is an exciting day, with the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. This historic trade agreement will provide significant savings to footwear consumers and companies once passed and implemented. This signing is a culmination of years of hard work from FDRA and its members to ensure the agreement has meaningful tariff cuts for footwear. Congress should now approve the agreement as soon as possible."
