Gereffi and Frederick (chapter 5) show that, in 2007, the estimated value of sales of Chinese apparel producers to the domestic market totaled US$93 billion, with 56 percent of overall apparel production activities in China destined for local consumers (Clothesource 2008). The crisis in advanced country markets has inspired export strategies to other developing countries.
