Beyond the Multi-Fibre Agreement: How are Workers in East Asia Faring?

  • Rajah Rasiah

    ()

    (Faculty of Economics and Administration, University of Malaya)

This article provides critical coordinates for considering implications of the termination of the Multi-Fibre Agreement for employment, wages and working conditions in selected East Asian countries. It starts by discussing first the main arguments on greater liberalisation initiatives for developing economies before analysing the evolution of the clothing value chain. The article eventually provides some justification for insertion of the selected countries to anchor the issue’s subsequent articles.
