Egy importliberalizálási javaslat és környezete
[A proposal on import liberalization and its environment]


  • Gács, János


The proposal of KOPINT—DATORG has a special role among concepts on import liberalization in Hungary, primarily due to its comprehensive approach. The concept, having received limited publicity so far, extensively utilizes the liberalization experiences of developing countries. It lays special emphasis on the tools frequently used in these countries (e. g. currency retention) and their likely effects under Hungarian circumstances. According to the proposal, import liberalization should be realized in a multi-regime, multi-step system, in which potential exporters possess advantages, where liberalization progresses by product groups, and efficient import substituting activities are not cut off from obtaining import inputs necessary for their production. This concept, however, proposes not only the liberalization of the inflow of imports, but to liberate the whole range of foreign trading activities, in fact the realization of opening up the Hungarian economy towards the world economy. The scheme takes into account all the elements of an export oriented economic policy and its institutional preconditions.
