Globalisierung, Regionalisierung und die Handelspolitik der Europäischen Union


  • Koopmann, Georg
  • Vogel, Lars


Die Europäische Union (EU) war vom Einbruch des Welthandels im vierten Quartal 2008 und ersten Quartal 2009 besonders stark betroffen: Die Warenexporte der EU in Drittländer gingen 2009 real um 15% zurück, während der Weltexport um 12% schrumpfte. Deutschland büßte dabei auch seine Spitzenstellung als Exportweltmeister ein und fiel mit einem Anteil von 9,2% an den globalen Warenausfuhren (einschl. der EU-internen Exporte) hinter China (9,8%) auf den zweiten Platz zurück. Die EU als Ganzes blieb indes der mit Abstand führende Exporteur in der Welt: Der Anteil ihrer Exporte in Drittländer am gesamten Weltexport (ohne Berücksichtigung der EU-internen Exporte) belief sich 2009 auf 16,2%, gefolgt von China mit 12,7%.
