Uyghurs- what effects are restrictions having on US apparel imports from China-

In the first four months of 2023, China-sourced goods accounted for only 17.9% of US apparel imports in value, and 30.6% in volume. In 2019, China’s share of US apparel imports was as high as 30% in value. Notably, China’s share of US cotton clothing imports has now dropped below 10%, a direct effect of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) introduced by the US government.

NGOs have been raising concerns for several years about the fact that 20% of the world’s cotton output originates from Xinjiang province, which is also the source of the best varieties of cotton. But the so-called “integration through labour” policies affecting the Uyghur Muslim minority which have been deployed by China in the province are now openly labelled by the international community as forced labour.A year ago, US customs began to impound Chinese imports sourced from Xinjiang, or suspected as such: 4,269 shipments have been checked during this period, of which 619 were confiscated. Of the shipments screened by customs, 753 contained apparel, footwear and textiles. However, China ranked as only the third country of origin in terms of the value of the shipments that were checked across all sectors, with $161.1 million worth of goods. It was mostly shipments from Malaysia (worth $843.7 million) and Vietnam (for $388.7 million) that were suspected of being linked to Uyghur exploitation.The hunt for Xinjiang-sourced goods has also notably affected Vietnam, the second-largest apparel supplier to the USA after Chinaคำพูดจาก Nhà Cái Casino Online. In the first four months of 2023, Vietnam’s share of US apparel imports fell to 17.3%, down from 18.6% a year earlier, reducing the market share gap between China and Vietnam to a mere 0.6%.
