ABSTRACT
The article reports that the United States and China have again entered a period of friction, as the U.S. trade deficit with the country has grown. As the battle heats up, one is reminded of all the drama, press and hype that surrounded the Japanese trade deficit with the United States in the 1980s. The issue became a major focus for the cotton sector recently, as the U.S. government reacted to the increase in U.S. textile and apparel imports from China during the first quarter of 2005. The U.S. President George W. Bush administration has announced that it is initiating safeguard proceedings on three apparel product categories. The proceedings will determine whether imports of certain Chinese origin textile and apparel products are contributing to the disruption of the U.S. market.
