The Pattern of Global Trade: Opportunities and Challenges for the Emerging Economics

Seminar 2: Free Trade Zone: International experience and local development

June 10, 2014
13:00 -15:30 (JST)

As the world economy becomes more globalized, the developing countries, which account for over 40 percent of the global trade, play an increasingly important role in global economy and trade. Since the financial crisis, the global economic and trade pattern has been readjusted, and new rules of global trade, which pursue higher liberalization in business operation, investment and services, and emphasize more on fair competition and protection of rights and interests, have been established. The new pattern may to a large extent reshape the external environment of the emerging economies and reconstruct the global economic value chain, and thus may again repel the emerging economies, including China, to the edge of the international trade system. Emerging economies are therefore confronted with severe challenges to establish more reasonable economic and trade policies for the purpose of playing an even more active role in the global economy and boosting sustainable local economic development.

This program is jointly organized by the Asia-Pacific Finance and Development Center (AFDC), Korean Development Institute (KDI) School of Public Policy and Management, The World Bank, and the WB Tokyo Development Learning Center.
