To help US apparel manufacturers and retailers take advantage of the Caribbean Basin Initiative (CBI), a new fast track CBI production alliance called Amerisource Alliance, Inc has been formed that will deliver full garment packages to US companies. "The recent CBI legislation opened the door for a new, more competitive business format in the US," said Dave Springett, president of the newly formed organisation. "The only component missing was one-stop access to all critical members of the supply chain."
