Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects on U.S. textile and apparel imports of the quantitative restrictions imposed under the Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC) (1995-2005), the post-ATC U.S. safeguard quotas on 21 categories of Chinese textile and apparel products (2006-2008), and no quantitative restrictions on U.S. textile and apparel imports (2009-2010).

Data were sourced from the Office of Textiles and Apparel (OTEXA) in the U.S. Department of Commerce, the GeoDist dataset from the Centre d’Etudes Prospectives et d’Informations Internationales (CEPII), and the United Nations Commodity Trade (U.N. Comtrade) database.

In this research, three gravity equations were developed and estimated based on the existing gravity model. (Abstract shortened by ProQuest.)
