The US Customs Service has sent a team to Hong Kong to evaluate the effectiveness of efforts to detect and prevent illegal transshipments of textiles, the US consulate general says.

Team findings would be a factor in an expected review of the additional import requirements imposed on some categories of Hong Kong textiles last year, it said yesterday.
