Section 213A (b)(2) of HOPE provides duty- free treatment for apparel articles wholly assembled, or knit-to-shape, in Haiti from any combination of fabrics, fabric components, components knit-to-shape, and yarns, if the sum of the cost or value of materials produced in Haiti or one or more countries, as described in HOPE, or any combination thereof, plus the direct costs of processing operations performed in Haiti or one or more countries, as described in HOPE, or any combination thereof, is not less than an applicable percentage of the declared customs value of such apparel articles, subject to quantitative limitation. Section 213A (a)(1)(B) of HOPE provides that the initial applicable oneyear period of quantitative limitation means the one-year period beginning on the date of the enactment of HOPE, PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 beginning on December 20, 2006.
