SAVE Act lobby gaining momentum in key US cities

The lobby in support of the SAVE Act which is pending in the US Congress is gaining momentum in key cities all over the country.

Filipino-Americans living in the United States are urged to support the pending legislation that will create jobs for the Philippine garment and US textile industries by writing to their legislators.

Ambassador to the US Jose Cuisia spoke to community leaders in San Francisco and Las Vegas last May 12 and May 14, respectively.

The newly appointed ambassador pointed out the need to exercise suffrage as a “potent force” to make the Fil-Am community vote viable in Congress.

“By showing our undivided support for key advocacies, we are not only supporting our kababayans but are also making it known that we the Filipino community, have a voice and a vote,” he said in Las Vegas.

Executive director Thelma Dumpit-Murillo of the Garments and Textile Industries Development Office-Department of Trade and Industry said the SAVE Our Industries Act or SAVE Act is an important piece of legislation that would expand trade by allowing items of apparel manufactured in the Philippines using US-made textiles to enter the country duty-free.
