This chapter discusses the practice of distributing, and redistributing quotas for exports and manufactures in Hong Kong under the trade restraints. The chapter addresses criticisms of the system, in particular the practice of transferring quotas between companies. It concludes that, despite the criticisms, the system worked well and in Hong Kong’s overall economic interests.
