Apparel exports soar as quota limit of EU expires
Mar '08
Statistics reveal that the export of clothes to EU made in Shunde city of Guangdong Province have increased remarkably in January, 2008.

Furthermore, both the export quantity and value have shown an increase of 285 and 314 percent respectively compared to January of the previous year.

Experts believe that the key reason behind this rapid increase is the removal of EU's quota limit on Chinese clothes from January this year. However, garment enterprises need to be extra careful with regard to the quantity of exports since this can once again attract anti-dumping, anti-allowance and technique barriers.

In other words, China must adhere to rational policies and must not get carried away by the prospect of enlarging exports. Failure to follow this, would inevitably lead to new trade friction that would in turn cause damage to the clothing industry.

To make matters sail more smoothly, the Juan Textile Clothes Test Center of Shunde city has started operating reducing risks and costs for various apparel companies. Local jeans clothing enterprises can now test their products from this institute for which they had to go as far as Hong Kong or Guangzhou.
