Canada is looking to diversify its trade partners in order to reduce its dependence on the US business cycle. The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada entered into force provisionally in September 2017. What goods and services is the EU exporting to Canada?

How much have the FDI net inflows dropped since the financial crisis? You can find the answers to these and other questions in our infographic, prepared in close cooperation between EPRS and GlobalStat.

Trade and economic relations with China 2015

23-06-2015

The EU's trade and economic relations with China, the global leader in trade, are generally good, and the number of disputes reasonable. Yet the EU is dissatisfied with China's reluctance to fully implement its commitments to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and, more generally, with its protectionist measures, which often hurt EU interests. For its part, Beijing is still dissatisfied with the EU's refusal to grant the country 'market economy' status and with other measures it believes limit China's ...

The EU's trade and economic relations with China, the global leader in trade, are generally good, and the number of disputes reasonable. Yet the EU is dissatisfied with China's reluctance to fully implement its commitments to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and, more generally, with its protectionist measures, which often hurt EU interests. For its part, Beijing is still dissatisfied with the EU's refusal to grant the country 'market economy' status and with other measures it believes limit China's access to the Single Market. Negotiations for an EU-China partnership and cooperation agreement, initiated in 2007, have yet to be concluded. In January 2014, China and the EU held the first round of negotiations for a bilateral investment agreement. Negotiations are progressing steadily but their end is not in sight. More recently, Beijing has suggested opening talks for an EU-China FTA, but Europe’s reaction has been lukewarm.

Role of wholesalers and distribution groups in international trade

11-06-2015

In this briefing, we assess the role of intermediaries and wholesalers in international trade based on the existing theory and empirical evidence. In all countries examined, a relevant share of international trade (on average more than 10%) occurs through intermediaries. Especially small and less efficient firms can export thanks to the presence of intermediaries operating on a larger scale and exploiting economies of scale. Intermediaries therefore can increase the amount of exports and the extent ...

In this briefing, we assess the role of intermediaries and wholesalers in international trade based on the existing theory and empirical evidence. In all countries examined, a relevant share of international trade (on average more than 10%) occurs through intermediaries. Especially small and less efficient firms can export thanks to the presence of intermediaries operating on a larger scale and exploiting economies of scale. Intermediaries therefore can increase the amount of exports and the extent of economic integration of a country, especially when there are relevant obstacles to access a foreign market. Many firms in emerging markets have access to foreign markets thanks to the presence of intermediaries. Because of the role played in an increasingly complex global market, wholesalers tend to have a large size and a significant market power. Therefore competition needs to be maintained in this sector, in order for countries to truly benefit from the presence of wholesalers and intermediaries.

Existing problems are described and recommendations for improvements of the practical implementation are given.

The Role of Small and Medium Enterprises in Developing Countries

31-03-2006

Development thinking towards small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) has shifted in its emphasis over the years. In the 1980s, led by the World Bank’s “Get your prices right” approach, small firm policy was focused on economic development through business development and access to capital. During this time SMEs were hailed, as had trade been before them (Lewis, 1954), as the new engine of growth for developing countries (DCs). By the 1990s the emphasis had shifted towards social development and ...

Development thinking towards small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) has shifted in its emphasis over the years. In the 1980s, led by the World Bank’s “Get your prices right” approach, small firm policy was focused on economic development through business development and access to capital. During this time SMEs were hailed, as had trade been before them (Lewis, 1954), as the new engine of growth for developing countries (DCs). By the 1990s the emphasis had shifted towards social development and therefore less interest was paid to fostering SMEs (CFED, 2004). In the last few years, however, a more holistic approach to dealing with inequities in the global economy has emerged, and SMEs are now viewed as a means of achieving both economic and social development through poverty reduction (CFED, 2004). During the first five years of this decade the World Bank has approved over $10 billion to support the growth of small firms, and indications from the Bank are that this support will continue (World Bank, 2002 and 2004).

East-West Energy Cooperation

01-06-1996

The European Parliament has taken an interest from the outset in issues concerning East-West cooperation in energy and nuclear security. The energy sector is a key sector in the economic life of both the Russian Federation, which is a large and inefficient consumer of energy, and all the states of the CIS and the other countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The aim of these external studies is to prepare background material for an EP-initiative concerning an action plan in this policy area; the ...
