The article focuses on the safeguard provisions by the U.S. government for the cotton industry. Alarmed by 1,000 percent-plus surges in Chinese textile and apparel imports, the U.S. government approved three safeguard cases against China. The cases cover cotton shirts, cotton trousers and cotton and man-made fiber underwear. National Cotton Council officials also applauded the decision announced by the U.S. Commerce Department. The safeguard provisions, which are permitted under the special China Textile Safeguard Authority contained in the China World Trade Organization Accession Agreement, will limit the growth of Chinese imports to 7.5 percent of the previous year's total for 12 months.
