This study, co-authored by Gereffi and Duke alumnus and current University of Colorado faculty member Jennifer Bair and a team of CGGC staff researchers, led the research team to Nicaragua in the fall of 2010 to interview textile and apparel companies, and government officials involved in trade promotion in this sector. The recent visit to Duke, facilitated by Ambassador Michael Samuels, President of Samuels International Affiliates who was further accompanied by Ms. Kimberly Glas, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Textiles and Apparel in the US Department of Commerce, was to discuss possible future CGGC research targeted at identifying new growth strategies for Nicaragua in textiles, including attracting foreign direct investment in Nicaragua, that would increase national employment and improve Nicaragua's overall global market share in this industry.
