Hurricane Sandy Benefit 
     Planned By NBC
As East Coast residents pick up the pieces from the devastation left behind by Hurricane Sandy, NBCUniversal is ready to step in and help. The entertainment conglomerate announced plans this morning to air a telethon on its networks to benefit those in need following the massive superstorm that ravaged New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and parts of Massachusetts and West Virginia. The special, called "Hurricane Sandy: 
Coming Together," will air on Friday night, broadcasting simultaneously on NBC, Bravo, CNBC, E!, G4, MSNBC, Style, 
Syfy and USA. Matt Lauer will host.
As noted in the press release, "Coming Together" will include performances by Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Sting. Jimmy Fallon and Brian Williams are also scheduled to appear.













While "Coming Together" is only airing on NBCUniversal-owned platforms at the moment, the company did allow that other networks could join as well prior to the 8 p.m. EST start time. (The telethon will be tape delayed for the West Coast.) Should "Coming Together" air across all networks, it would be far from unprecedented. 
In 2010, George Clooney spearheaded a telethon for the damage caused by the Haiti earthquake, and it aired on all four major networks (NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox) as well as MTV, HBO, PBS and more.

Turkey & US Urge India to End Export Subsidies 
The US and Turkey have urged India to start phasing out export subsidies given to its textile and clothing industry as part of government efforts to help exporters fight the global slowdown.
The comments were made at a World Trade Organization Committee on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures at the end of last month.
The WTO in 2007 found India was "export competitive" after its share of the global textiles market exceeded 3.25%.
But India reiterated that it wants clarity and common understanding first on certain issues about its obligations to phase out subsidies, and that it is open to bilateral discussions.

KiK to Pay Damages to Families of Fire Victims
German clothing retailer KiK allegedly plans to pay damages totaling US$500,000 to the families of more than 260 workers who died in a fire at a Pakistan factory used to manufacture its clothing.
The payout will mean around $1,930 per victim, Der Spiegel reported. However, reports from Pakistan paper Dawn reported that Nasir Mansoor, head of the National Trade Union Federation (NTUF) said pressure from his organization and the Clean Clothes Campaign have forced KiK to increase the compensation by another EUR500,000.
The Pakistani government has paid more than 100 family members PAK700,000 (US$7,303), but many families say they are still waiting for the checks, according to Dawn.
Der Spiegel said there has also been confusion about the exact number of victims. Workers' representatives in Pakistan estimate that more than 300 people died. Some 63 of the suspected dead are still officially counted as missing.
Another issue impacting the speed of payment, is the lack of contracts linking them to the factory, which makes it hard for them to establish their claims, Der Sepiegel added.
The fire, at the Ali Enterprises factory, located Baldia Town No 2 in the port city of Karachi took place in early September.
According to media reports, close to 1,500 workers were in the building at the time of the fire. Many victims were trapped in a basement with no fire exits and locked doors. 
Most died from suffocation when the basement filled with smoke. Workers on higher floors rushed to windows to escape, but struggled because metal bars blocked their way.
KiK, the NTUF and the Clean Clothes Campaign have not yet responded to requests for comment.

   US Advances Talks on   
 Trade Partnership with 
      Five EAC States
The United States is advancing its talks to boost trade and investment with five East African nations.
The discussions are part of a US-East African Community Trade and Investment Partnership agreed earlier this year, and involve EAC states Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi.
In talks on October 19, the two sides said they will meet again at the "soonest possible date" to move forward on a proposed investment treaty and a trade facilitation agreement.
The US has also promised an extra $10m over the next five years to the EAC Secretariat to support regional economic integration.
"Building upon the foundations of our existing trade and investment relationship, the Partnership will help to promote EAC regional integration, social and economic growth, and expand and diversify US-EAC trade and investment," a statement said.
"It could also serve as building blocks towards a more comprehensive trade agreement over the long term."

      Thread Loophole in DR-CAFTA Trade Pact
             Closed
US textile industry experts are predicting a boost to the country's thread manufacturing sector following a reform to a loophole in the US-Dominican Republic-Central America Free Trade Agreement (DR-CAFTA) that had left American producers vulnerable.
The new rule came into force on October 13. and corrects a definition that had encouraged the use of non-US (mainly Chinese and other east Asian) sewing threads in American, Central American and Dominican Republic textiles and apparel production.
It will ensure textiles will only receive preferential tariff treatment within the free trade area if certain single-ply synthetic sewing threads produced in the US or the DR-CAFTA regions are used during production.
"[The industry has] been waiting a long time for this correction to be made and they are very excited," said Cass Johnson, president of the National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO).
"There are thousands of jobs in the United States related to the sewing thread industry. This legislation will help preserve those jobs and that industry."

WTO Consultations on China Textile Subsidies
The United States and European Union are to join consultations between Mexico and China at the World Trade Organization on the issue of subsidies provided by China to support its textile and clothing industry.
Mexico earlier this month requested formal consultations with China as the first stage of an official disputes case.
The US and EU are supporting Mexico's case as third parties, and had ten days to make a decision after Mexico first requested consultations.
The move has been welcomed by Cass Johnson, president of the US's National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO), who describes the case as a "landmark."
"For decades, large and comprehensive subsidies by the Chinese government have prevented free and fair markets from operating in world trade in textiles and apparel," he says.
NCTO has listed 30 subsidies given to Chinese textile and apparel producers by the Chinese government, and notes that US imports of Chinese textile and apparel products have increased by 523% or $34bn over the past 11 years, and now total nearly $41bn. Over the same time, Chinese market share has increased from 10% to 40%. 
"The US government decision to join the consultations sends a strong signal of support to the government of Mexico in this important case," he adds.
Johnson also said that the US typically joins consultations regarding China and subsidies because of longstanding concerns about China's government subsidies - so it would have been unusual if there was no involvement.
The US government has "made numerous statements at the WTO and through USTR [the US Trade Representative] regarding the failure of China to notify its subsidy structure to the WTO (as required) and have filed a number of WTO cases just over the last two years aimed at Chinese subsidies in other areas," he added. 
The preferred course of action is for WTO members to settle the dispute amongst themselves, but if a solution is not agreed within 60 days, the complainant can request adjudication by a panel.
The Mexican government claims China's textile and clothing policy breaks the WTO's subsidies and countervailing measures agreement, the general agreement on tariffs and trade (GATT), the agriculture agreement and China's own WTO accession commitments.
Support that Mexico says is illegal under world trade law includes: income tax, import duty, VAT and municipal tax exemptions, reductions and refunds; low-cost loans, extended loan repayment periods, debt forgiveness by state-owned banks; preferential prices for land use rights; government fee refunds; discounted electricity rates; cotton production, import and distribution subsidies; and government cash payments to the sector.
