An excerpt from "Nicaragua Falls Short Again: Tariff Preference Level Reduced by 3% for 2012"

On Tuesday July 10, 2012, the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements announced that it is reducing the 2012 tariff preference level (TPL) for Nicaragua to account for the shortfall in meeting the one-to-one commitment for cotton and man-made fiber trousers exported from Nicaragua to the United States pursuant to the Central America-Dominican Republic-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR). The TPL can be beneficial to both U.S. textile mills seeking to source in Nicaragua as well as retailers and apparel manufacturing companies doing business in Nicaragua.
