Asia Times: West blocks China’s cotton route

Two articles about the growing concern over the flood of Chinese into the US and Europe. From the Asia Times:

Challenges loom over Chinese apparel exports as the United States and the European Union seem to be initiating steps to restrict this trade as demands from domestic producers get shriller. While the US government took the first step on Tuesday toward restricting imports of low-priced pants, shirts and underwear from China in response to pressure from its textile industry, the EU’s executive commission is scheduled to present on Wednesday a framework for holding back the flood of Chinese textile imports.

And from the Christian Science Monitor, “As China sews, few US mills left.”
