Some points are worth noting from the table:
a)Mexico still retains its position as number 1 exporter despite falling share.
b)China is yet to make a significant mark in the US men’s jeans market.
c)Bangladesh has continued to make progress and has aquired a sizeable 9% share of the market.
However, its big neighbour India still has an insignificant share of 0.67% and it shows that India is
not competitive in this product.
d)Small countries like Lesotho have made great use of Sub-saharan treaties to increase exports to US
e)Egypt has gained a great share at the cost of Jordan due to benefits extended to it. Jordan has lost the share due to its rising costs.
