If we look closely at any of our de­vel­op­ing com­pe­ti­tion, it would be seen that China and Korea are play­ing or have played a ma­jor role in the es­tab­lish­ment and growth of the tex­tile and ap­parel in­dus­try in those coun­tries.

There is also no trade mem­ber­ship in im­por­tant mar­kets, which re­stricts abil­ity to tap other po­ten­tial mar­kets.
