Seeking Opportunities from New Patterns in Global Trade
AbstractThe emergence of the new South-South axis in commerce provides extraordinary opportunities for poverty alleviation, investment in clean technologies, and strong movement toward sustainable development in both regions. Yet there is also the possibility of major impacts on the environment. This paper examines the environmental and social implications for Latin America and the Caribbean of economic growth in Asia and presents ideas as to how the region can take full advantage of change.
