In the last round of GATT negotiations (1994), Uruguay Round (UR) it has been decided that these restrictions will be phased out2 within the span of ten years, by 2005. An important change brought out by the agreement on textile and clothing (ATC) will be the reduction of non-tariff barriers (NTBs). According to one estimate Pakistan will have an additional market access of about 62 percent and 67 percent for textile and clothing respectively with the eradication of MFA in 2005 [Khan and Mahmood (1996)].
