The objective of this study is to find out how preferential rules of origin are applied to Nepalese exports and examine the effects of rules of origin criteria in augmenting carpet, pashmina, handicrafts and tea exports from Nepal to the EU, Japan and the USA under duty free quota free (DFQF) facilities, a special category of preferential non-reciprocal trade treatment granted to least developed countries (LDCs). For implementation of these facilities, so-called “preferential” rules of origin are used.
