The article reports on a three-year agreement between the U.S. and China restricting U.S. imports of Chinese textiles and apparel products in all or parts of 34 sensitive categories. The bilateral agreement is a measure towards checking China's unfair trade practices and highly disruptive levels of textile trade. The agreement is a result of two months of negotiations between the two countries to stop increased flow of Chinese textile and apparel imports since the expiration of the Multi-Fiber-Arrangement quotas on January 1, 2005.
