Trading in Transition
International trade is an agent of change. However, the nature of trade is also changing, with serious implications for Europe’s trade policy. Our economies are becoming increasingly integrated. Pick any product today — from the paperclip on your desk to the car you drive. Almost certainly some of the work that went into it happened outside the country you are in, whether its design, marketing, or financing, or the manufacturing of its different components. This has implications for our economies, our societies, and the way governments regulate them.
