On July 12, 2022, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) posted recordings of the webinars held in February and March 2022 on the Dominican Republic-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR). The webinars specifically addressed the provisions on textiles and apparel. The recordings are posted in English with Spanish captions. According to the notice, the objective for the webinars “was to enhance stakeholder understanding of the textile and apparel provisions of CAFTA-DR and identify opportunities for increasing and diversifying two-way trade between the United States and CAFTA-DR partner countries.”

The topics for the four sessions were as follows:

  • Trends and Opportunities in CAFTA-DR Textile and Apparel Trade & Best Practices in Upholding Worker Rights
  • Making Use of CAFTA-DR’s Rules of Origin for Apparel
  • The CAFTA-DR Short Supply Mechanism: What It Is and How to Use It
