8 End of quotas Everyone here knows that the end of global clothing quotas under the AMF/ATC has a profound impact on the international trade in textiles and clothing. Read in the press reports of closed factories in the sub-Saharan region and rumours of others in serious difficulty. At the same time, apparel imports from China to the United States increased dramatically in the first quarter of 2005, particularly in the main product sectors where African producers compete, such as cotton pants and knitting shirts. 2. The measures in Article 6 are taken for certain textile and clothing products and not on the basis of the lines of the HS itself. In order to facilitate the integration of the textile and clothing sector into the 1994 GATT, members should enable continuous and autonomous industrial adaptation and increased competition in their markets. (11) In extremely unusual and critical circumstances in which a delay would cause a harm that is difficult to repair, action may be taken on an interim basis in accordance with paragraph 10, provided that the request for consultation and notification to the TMB are made within a maximum of five working days from the time the measure is taken. If the consultation does not reach an agreement, the TMB informs the TMB at the end of the consultations and no later than sixty days after the implementation date of the action. The TMB immediately reviews the issue and makes appropriate recommendations to the members concerned within 30 days.

In the event that consultations reach an agreement, members notify the TMB once completed and no later than 90 days after the action is implemented. The TMB may make recommendations that it deems appropriate for the members concerned. 2. Members agreed to use the provisions of Article 2, paragraph 18, and Article 6, paragraph b, paragraph 6, point b), so that small suppliers have tangible access opportunities and to develop economically important business opportunities for new entrants to the textile and clothing sector. (1) exports of hand-woven goods from the steel industry or handmade steel products from these hand fabrics or traditional traditional textile and artisanal clothing products from Member States, provided that these products are duly certified in accordance with the agreements reached between the members concerned; 13. In the first stage of the agreement (from the date the WTO agreement came into force until the 36th month in which it is in force, including), the level of any limitation under the bilateral MfAB agreements, in force for the 12-month period prior to the wto agreement`s effective date, is increased each year by a maximum of the growth rate set for the corresponding restrictions, plus 16%. 1. All quantitative restrictions under bilateral agreements, pursued in accordance with Article 4 or notified in accordance with Articles 7 or 8 of the AMF, apply the day before the WTO agreement enters into force and are communicated in detail by members who maintain these restrictions to the textile control body covered by Article 8 (known as TMB in that agreement) within 60 days of the date of the agreement`s entry into force. Members agreed that from the date of the WTO agreement`s entry into force, all of these restrictions, which are maintained between the contracting parties to the 1947 GATT and apply the day before it enters into force, will be subject to the provisions of this agreement. 16. The flexibility provisions, i.e. transfer, which are transferred and transferred and apply to all restrictions maintained under this article, are in line with the restrictions in the bilateral amf agreements for the 12-month period prior to the ENTRY into force of the WTO agreement.
