Trade Agreement Meaning In Economics

Opublikowano: sobota, Gru 19, 2020

These occur when one country imposes trade restrictions and no other country responds. A country can also unilaterally relax trade restrictions, but this rarely happens. This would penalize the country with a competitive disadvantage. The United States and other developed countries do so only as a kind of foreign aid to help emerging countries strengthen strategic industries that are too small to be a threat. It helps the emerging market economy to grow, to create new markets for U.S. exporters. While free trade offers global benefits, removing a trade barrier on a particular good harms shareholders and employees of the local industry that produces the property. Some groups that are aggrieved by foreign competition have sufficient political power to protect themselves from imports. As a result, despite their considerable economic costs, trade barriers continue to exist. For example, according to the U.S. International Trade Commission, the U.S. benefit from lifting trade restrictions on textiles and clothing would have been nearly $12 billion in 2002. This is a net economic benefit after deducting losses suffered by businesses and workers in the domestic industry.

Nevertheless, local textile producers were able to convince Congress to maintain strict import restrictions. As a general rule, the benefits and obligations of trade agreements apply only to their signatories. As a multilateral trade agreement, GATT calls on its signatories to extend the status of the Most Preferred Nation (MFN) to other trading partners participating in the WTO. MFN status means that each WTO member enjoys the same tariff treatment of its products in foreign markets as the „preferred” country that competes in the same market, thus excluding preferences or discrimination from a Member State. On the other hand, some local industries benefit. They are finding new markets for their duty-free products. These industries are growing and employing more labour. These compromises are the subject of endless debate among economists. One of the challenges of the WTO system has been the maintenance and expansion of the liberal global trading system in recent years. Multilateral negotiations on trade liberalization are progressing very slowly and the need for consensus among the many WTO members limits the scope of trade reform agreements. As Mike Moore, a new WTO Director General, said, the organization is like a car with an accelerator pedal and 140 hand brakes.
