Question: The American textile industry has moved much of its operations

The American textile industry has moved much of its operations offshore in the pursuit of lower labor costs. Over the past 50 years, textile imports have risen from 2% of all textile production to over 70%. Offshore manufacturers make long runs of standard mass-market apparel items. These are then brought to the United States in container ships, requiring significant time between original order and delivery. As a result, retail customers must accurately forecast market demands for imported apparel items.
Assuming that you work for a U.S.-based textile company, how would you recommend responding to the low-cost imports?
