“FDRA stands ready to work with the Administration on ways to modernize and strengthen NAFTA, including seeking more flexible trading rules that reflect our modern global footwear supply chain. Mexico and Canada are key partners for the U.S. footwear industry, and updating the agreement to provide flexibilities that incentivize the utilization of a new and improved NAFTA will ultimately deliver greater benefits to U.S. footwear consumers. Today’s letter to Congress from the United States Trade Representative (USTR) begins an important process, and as the voice of the American footwear industry, we look forward to advocating on behalf of our companies and their customers.”
