Abstract: 1. The study examines developments in foreign trade of the Indian textile industry, in relation to cotton and non-cotton segments for low value added and high value added product groups, in the backdrop of the trends and policies of the overall foreign trade of India in recent years from 1994. The Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC) of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) was in operation from January 1995 to December 2004. The implementation of ATC as part of WTO agreements resulted in phasing out of quantitative restrictions (QRs) on imports of textiles and clothing. The textiles sector has been integrated with the provisions of General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) of WTO from January 2005. Thereafter the sector does not have any differential treatment in global trade as distinct from other sectors. In the analysis attempted in the study, ATC period and post-ATC period are important landmarks. ATC period has also been divided into two phases of five years each. (B) Implications of Post-ATC Scenario on India and Other Asian Developing Countries 2. Quota free regime of international trade from January 2005 has made a positive impact on the Indian textile and clothing (TandC) exports, as well as on the overall exports of the country. Share of cotton TandC exports in total TandC exports has increased to around 63% in recent years, and has been steadily increasing, while that of non-cotton TandC exports has come down to around 37%. The trade has been shifting towards higher value added products, namely, readymade garments and made-ups from the earlier stage of exporting raw materials and intermediate products (fibre, yarn and fabrics). Non-cotton textile imports accounted for 75 to 83 per cent in recent years, and cotton textile imports remained around 17 to 20 per cent. Non-cotton imports is, thus, dominant in TandC imports. The imports largely consist of extra long staple cotton. In case of all textile imports, China continues to be the leading source country. This is followed distantly by USA and Australia.
