This paper evaluates what global market strategy or set of such strategies will serve best to reverse the declining share of the global handmade carpet market for producers in Pakistan. The purpose of the proposed study is to develop insights into the mechanisms required for the effective assimilation of labor-intensive industries in developing countries into a the contemporary global economy. It shows that while the proposed study focuses on the handmade carpet industry, the findings in relation to this labor-intensive industry provide valuable lessons for other labor-intensive industries in developing countries.

From the Paper:

"While handmade carpets from this region stretching from Turkey to Mongolia sell for very high prices in foreign markets, the producers receive prices for the products which are quite low by comparison. As a consequence, these producers have long sought to minimize their costs of production. The export companies in their own countries, not the pressures of recent globalization, motivated these efforts. The primary factor of production in the creation of one of these carpets is labor. Thus, labor is the area where these producers have always sought economies. The primary strategy for cost control in the production of handmade carpets has long been the use of child labor usually under the age of 12 year old (Bureau of International Labor Affairs, United States Department of Labor, 1999)."
