Blog: Leonie BarrieChina’s Pakistani partners

Leonie Barrie | 6 December 2004

The Chinese juggernaut won’t be stopped by safeguard action in the event of over-shipment during the WTO quota-free regime it seems. Ever resourceful, China is negotiating to export fashion apparel to the US market via Pakistan, with newspaper reports suggesting that a formal agreement will be signed by Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz during his forthcoming visit to China. The arrangement will involve Pakistan’s technology and technical staff and will cover categories that Pakistan has not been able to fully utilise. Of course the reach of Chinese businesses already extends well beyond the country itself, but will this now herald a new wave of new limits on textile and clothing imports I wonder?
