The article focuses on the China's Commerce Ministry announcement of imposing export tariffs on some textile and apparel products.

The move is China's answer to wide spread criticism from trade associates in other textile producing nations. While exporters await clarification on the tariff issue, the coalition of industry trade groups files preemptive safeguard petitions with the U.S. government.
