The Impact of EC-92 on Trade in Developing Countries
AbstractHow is the attempt of the European Community (EC) to create a single market going to affect the developing countries? This article argues that the net direct effects of EC-92 may be rather small: the trade creation and trade diversion effects brought about by the program may cancel each other out, with few repercussions for the developing countries as a group. The expected changes in trade flows arising from relatively small changes in nominal prices and aggregate incomes, the changes in market structure, the removal of internal barriers, and a predicted 5 percent increase in EC output may be important to European policymakers but they are rather remote from the developing countries. The threat of EC-92 to the developing countries lies elsewhere: from diversion of investment from those countries to the EC and from the resurrection of protectionism by the EC, especially in the form of nontariff barriers, toward the outside world.
