    Abstract

    This paper establishes an inventory of international migration and trade relationship. In the new global context, this link is complex and multidimensional. It includes political, economic, social, and legal, it involves many actors like international organizations, migrants, countries of origin and host. Our methodology is based on Principal Component Analysis and a Hierarchical Ascendant Classification to show a clear link between migration and trade, where distance is the main discriminating variable. We used a gravity model in cross section to show the positive effect of trade on international migration. The signs obtained for the two variables (exports and imports) indicate clearly a complementary relationship between migration and trade. We note also that the degrees of significance of these two variables are close. This seems to confirm that it is important that the bilateral trade relations are that migration is important.
