The above figure can be described as in general that the clothing export data of China is related in trend and scale to United States data. The US reports around $2 bn more in China’s clothing imports from 1997 to 2004, with the space widening in 2005 and 2006. The Chinese data shows a dramatic increase in exports of clothing in 2005, the 1st year after the decline of Agreement of Textile and Clothing, while the United States data has smooth development in clothing imports of China from 2003 to 2006. While these variations seem small they also have political suggestions. The Chinese data also reveals a present increase in exports of clothing to U.S., it is necessary to denote if this is a distinct phenomenon with US or if the clothing exports of China are increasing in general (Fenstra and Wei, 2010).
In 2001 the increase in the textile exports of China to US initiated but aroused higher in 2005. Thus both the countries also reveal that the textile and clothing exports growth in China affixes the decline of Agreement on Textile and Clothing. For both textiles and clothing there is a mentionable increasing of levels of trade between 2001 and 2002, with higher rate of growth continuing till 2004. From the two countries the data also reveals the variations between textile and clothing trade. Whereas China has become a necessary source of textile and clothing exports of United States, the major clear leader of market for clothing is China. From the perspective of China, the United States market developed their importance over the past ten years, but in textile market, the US remains comparatively little and possibly terminating outlet for textile exports of China. One possible explanation of the trade data is that US is dependent more on importing textiles and clothing from China than China is relied on exporting its textile and clothing to US.
