China's textile and clothing industry has grown rapidly to become one of the leading suppliers of textile and clothing imports to US and West European markets. And there is still huge potential for further growth. China itself is becoming a consumer society, and its own domestic market is mushrooming as demand for high quality Western clothing is on the increase. The report looks at the trends in China's imports and exports, in the light of trade liberalisation, tariff cuts and the phasing out of quotas. It also examines the prospects and identifies opportunities and potential pitfalls for foreign partners who wish to embark on joint ventures with Chinese enterprises, to gain a foothold in the markets of the world's most highly populated country.
