What Should the Framework for Opening up to the International Economy be?
The opening up to the international economy by numerous developing countries is taking place entirely within the framework of regional or international accords. By thus institutionalising their trade liberalisation, these countries are seeking to benefit better from the gains of liberalisation, notably by stressing the irreversibility of the reforms. Nevertheless, this strategy holds out numerous risks, which are especially linked to the uniformity of liberalisation enforced by certain accords. The role of the international trade institutions must undoubtedly be redefined from this point of view, so as to help smaller, poor countries manage liberalisation more effectively and derive the most benefits from it.
