The textile quotas are a measure taken within the framework of OMC, restricting the quantum of imports in particular coming from the large producer countries, the China at the head.
In 2005, the textile quotas were removed within the framework of the agreements of OMC; however, in particular in France, this lifting of the quotas reached the French Textile industry hard and gave place to renegotiations of the agreements on ten categories of products Textile S and clothing within the framework of the European Union. These new quotas were officially reintroduced on July 11th, 2005, by the European Commissioner with the Trade, Peter Mandelson, limiting until 2007 the rise of the imports from 8 to 12,5% per annum.
This renegotiation of the agreements calls in question the role of OMC, whose free-trade policy sees himself confronted with the sectors in crisis of the developed countries, which implement all the means of pressure to constitute protectionist barriers according to their interests. An identical phenomenon had already occurred with the the United States for the Acier.
