Integration and Growth in the EU. The Role of Trade

  • Mª Luz García de la Vega
  • José A. Herce

Using spatial econometrics techniques this paper investigates the relationship between trade and growth in the European Union (EU). We find that the EU integration process has promoted trade, especially between close neighbours, and that trade has been the channel of diffusion of interdependent growth, being this fact more important at the beginning of the integrating process than in the latter years. This result illustrates the idea that by enhancing trade, economic integration induces externalities between countries.
