Abstract: On January 1st 2005, the abolition of the textile quotas by the World Trade Organisation (WTO) opened the door for enormous opportunities for the developing countries to increase their textile exports in the lucrative European Union and US markets. By March 2005, due to massive export of textile and apparel items from China, textile industries in many developed countries started witnessing rapid job losses. Under pressure from their domestic textile trade associations, both the US and EU re-imposed quotas on Chinese textile imports. This resulted in a bitter trade dispute between the US, EU and China.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the effect of abolition of MFA on European and American textile markets.
  • To discuss the restrictive trade practices in a free global market.
