Abstract

This paper is about tests for trade barriers and market integration in Russian textile sector. The study contributes to the existing literature on internal market integration, examining the extent of such integration in textile sector in the transitional economy of Russia. We find fairly strong evidence of market integration in textile sector for most regions over 2002–2009. Our findings suggest that the internal market in Russia is quite efficient, and, hence, anticipated WTO accession can benefit the consumers of textile products.
