Overview

The MultiFibre Agreement (MFA) due to be phased out by 1 January 2005 heralds the emergence of freer trade. Alongside the MFA phase-out there has been a proliferation of preferential trading arrangements which has resulted in new and more complex forms of managed trade in textiles and clothing.
This volume of five studies by Commonwealth experts gives an economic analysis of rules of origin relating to Africa under various existingpreferential arrangements. It provides trade policy practitioners with an indication of how rules of origin have dramatically affected the emerging trade in textiles and clothing in Southern Africa. These studies conclude that while rules of origin as trade policy instruments will become less significant in coming years with the reduction of MFA tariff, they will continue to play an important role in determining the patterns of international trade in the foreseeable future.
