Exports Source: Textile and cloth Other Anderson (2002). In order to obtain desirable benefits from liberal trade, the SAEs have placed greater emphasis on achieving macroeconomic stability. In addition to tariff protection, exchange rate policies as well as monetary and fiscal policies are employed in order to obtain direct and indirect protection for imports and exports. During the late 1990s, appreciation of real exchange rates was observed in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, which has eroded the price incentives that were generated through exchange rate depreciation 37 (Karunagoda and others, 2002; World Bank, 2004).

For example, while agriculture provided paid employment in India for only 5 per cent of the labour force during 2004, its rural population forms the largest part of the total population. This means the sector is instrumental in ensuring rural development and provision of livelihood security. When it comes to the negotiation of preferential liberalization, which often embraces “made to measure” liberalization, this sector (is more likely than others) will be granted longer transitional periods, lesser tariff cuts and other exemptions in order for it to become a vehicle for rural development.

Identification of the share of trade associated with the establishment of the preferential trade area is still one of the most tedious forms of empirical trade research (cf. Mayda and Steinberg, 2007; DeRosa, 2007). 13 See Mayda and Steinberg (2007), on lack of evidence for across-the-board new trade creation in response to the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa, and DeRosa (2007), for slightly different arguments. 13 Figure VIIa.
