Quota Charges, Price Changes And Administration Of The Canadian Bilateral Clothing Quotas In Hong Kong And Taiwan
Through interviews in Hong Kong a number of questions were asked on how the bilateral quotas agreement with Canada has been administered and its impact on the export clothing market. The areas discussed were as follows: (a) procedures for acquisition of quotas; (b) regulations governing the transfer of quotas; (c) the shortcomings of the current quota system from the Hong Kong exporters point of view; (d) the percentage of people holding quota who manufacture and who do not manufacture; (e) the effect of a bilateral quota system on price competition in the Hong Kong export market; (f) the impact on FOB prices as seen by the exporter; (g) the effect of the quota system on the structure of the textile and clothing industries; and (h) the impact of the quotas on the quality or price range of merchandise sold. The following is a summary of the interviews which were made with manufactures, traders and government officials in Hong Kong concerning the operation and effects of the quotas imposed on the export of clothing to Canada.
