RULES OF ORIGIN: Textiles and Clothing Sector

Edited by Roman Grynberg

This book is an important contribution towards promoting an understanding of the economic implications of preferential rules of origin in textiles and clothing, and their impact on international trade in these sectors. For the authors, it has been hard to contest that the design of garment rules of origin in both US and EU preferential arrangements is specifically aimed at protecting domestic textile interests, and only peripherally and incidentally at assisting the developing country beneficiary of the preference arrangement.

The articles in Rules of Origin bring together works that provide exceptional analysis and studiescommissioned by the Commonwealth Secretariat at the request of developing countries. Apart from the articles, the book contains key legal documents that cover rules of origin and trade in textiles and clothing.

Roman Grynberg is Department Head and Deputy Director, Trade and Regional Integration of the Commonwealth Secretariat in London.
