The business community and a segment of the policymaking community eventually began to recognize, however belatedly, how critical the external sector could be to economic growth and poverty alleviation. While property rights have been properly defined, implementation has been arbitrary. In 1989-90, applied average unweighted tariffs for the South Asian economies were 76%.
. . Entry of letter C would be followed by the sum of the aggregate content originating in the terri- tory of the exporting Contracting State expressed as a percentage of the f. Thus, for Rule 3, the percentage would not exceed 70 per cent, and for Rule 4, the percentage would not be less than 40 per cent.

But trade liberalisation scheme is not to be applied for the sensitive list because this list is to be negotiated among the contracting countries and then to be traded.
