Individual Trade Policies in EU - The Case of Car Markets


  • Drei, Paola


This paper examines the possibilities of EU member countries to pursue individual trade policies after implementation of the single market. Having reviewed the relevant changes in the institutional framework formed by GATT and EU legistlation, we examine the car market as a special case. We find that the single market makes the national quotas ineffective and necessiates their replacement by union level protective measures. However, analysis of the negotiation process suggests that both national and producer interests have significant influence in the formation of the common EU trade policy.
