International Trade and Third World Development

Synopsis

Foreign trade is a key factor in the development strategy of Third World countries. The development of world trade as a whole has not, however, led to an improvement in the relative position of the developing countries. Despite efforts to promote and liberalize world trade, serious quota and tariff barriers in world markets--often a violation of the principles advocated and accepted in international forums on world trade--still exist for many Third World countries. Specific issues such as import controls, export subsidies, foreign trade and payments, negotiating strategies, and industrial protectionism are explored as are the broad theoretical aspects of the role of trade in Third World development.

Excerpt

I am pleased to know of the International
Development Resources Bock project. the 20 resource
bocks which are published under this project, covering
the whole spectrum of issues in the fields of development
economics and international co-operation for
development, and containing not only current reading
materials but also up-to-date statistical data and
bibliographical notes, will, I am sure, prove to be
extremely useful to a wide public.

I would like to commend the author for having
undertaken this very ambitious and serious project and,
by so doing, rendered a most valuable service. I am
confident that it will have a great success.
