a. China

[private_special]

China has been the largest exporter of jeans to US for many years. However, of late, it has been losing steam as it gets more expensive and less competitive. If we see the figures from 2013 to 2017, we find that Chinese exports have gone down more than 20% in this period . This shows slackening hold of Chinese exports to US. However, if we still consider, China is the largest supplier of jeans and denim apparel to US. Looking at Pakistan, we find that though their base is small , they have increased their sales to US by over 20% in this period. So whereas China has reduced their exports by 20% , Pakistan has gained by 20% . But still, China exports over 5 times the quantity what Pakistan exports and is a force to reckon with.
