The allocation of textile and apparel export quotas among companies (الإنجليزية)

Optimal allocation of textile and apparel export quotas among various companies in an exporting country necessitates appropriate policies to maximize efficiency and increase output of a particular commodity. This situation in the textile and apparel industry is a result of relatively recent protectionist measures such as the Multifiber Arrangements. Under these arrangements, importing countries consult with exporting countries on the terms of export restraint arrangements which usually yield bilateral agreements. These agreements in turn specify a quota limit on the quantities of commodity categories that each country might export to a relevant importing country in each time period. Once a country's export quota is fixed, quotas must be distributed either to exporting companies or to importing companies, depending on the form of administration of the restraint system. This paper will, in Part II, discuss the principles of optimal allocation of quotas among exporting firms, where the exporting country is empowered to allocate and the expected effects of different allocational arrangements. In Part III, it will discuss the rules for allocation of quota among firms that actually prevail and the expected consequences of those rules and practices.
