External trade

This is a broad review of the development of the ECAFE region’s trade from 1960 to the second half of 1966 in the context of the United Nations Development Decade. It attempts to depict the ECAFE region’s position in world trade, and the characteristic features of the region’s trade expansion from the points of view of trade balance, terms of trade, and capacity to import. It also analyzes the changes in the direction and composition of trade, the pattern of the region’s intra-regional trade, and explores the ways of promoting intra-regional trade. Since the focus of attention is on the trade problems of the developing ECAFE region, the analysis of the developed ECAFE countries trade is limited to their trade relationships with the developing ECAFE countries.
