Before this revision, Asia and in particular China had already challenged the EU to a largeextent within the fashion manufacturing sector. If not legally, then illegally through counterfeits[explaination required and evidence
(you mean the cheap copy)].
It became standard knowledge that theEU, home of many fashion houses which were key generators of employment, had beenhemorrhaging jobs to Asian countries.
In a recent report
European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and WorkingConditions (EFILWC)opined
[is that a word]
that with enlargement to the East and in conjunctionwith its states in the south, the EU was set to increase its 200 billion euro textile & clothingproduction capacity. This in an industry spread amongst approximately 230, 000 companiesand employing more than 2.7 million people, a figure that could possibly rise to between 3.3million and 7.3 million plus.
[what does this figure mean to the jeans industry?]
The same report states that “…... The share of the textiles and clothing sector, in terms of total manufacturing value added at EU level, amounts to roughly 4% and the share of total manufacturing employment level is around 7%” continuing to predict “ that the end of thequota system will result in a loss of 15% of the jobs in this sector in the United Kingdom aloneand 13% in Germany”.
The last figures are quoted in the report as reason enough to galvanise into action thoseconcerned with EU fashion management. If they fail to take note, recognise the threat fromthe abroad and identify their own unique strengths, weaknesses and competativeness, agood chance exists that when Chinese products replace other countries goods around theworld, this revision will do for the European Jeans and clothing industry what Japan andKorea
[and scandavia, germany etc. don’t make incorrect comparisons: the british car industry didn’t die because of competition alone but due to rising costsof production and collaborations with european firms]
have done for the British car industry
Are you pro- european here? Are youmaking a thesis or fighting a cause. Try writing a thesis starement like:
supposing liberalisation the WTO (export) quota system will increase economic growth in for the (Jean) textile industry: does this risk replacing Europeanproduction with new production monopoly in Asia”
This dissertation examines this danger and aims to explore the resultant changes that are or may occur within the EU Jeans production and supply chain. It also studies how thesechanges are perceived and managed by the fashion hierarchy and, reflecting the EFILWC’sreported concerns:
Forecasts the short, medium and long term developments that might take place in this sector as a result of the revision and the industry’s reaction to it
Outlines strategies for change
Reflects upon survival mechanisms and options for growth in the mid-term
In pursuing this aim, the dissertation argues that
