Intra-regional trade as a growth strategy: Introduction

The case for promoting trade among the countries of the ECAFE region rests primarily upon the case of promoting trade among developing countries in general, for the countries of the region mostly belong to the developing category. The arguments that will be presented during the course of the present survey, however, will show that the developed countries of the region, namely Japan, Australia and New Zealand, also stand to gain significantly by entering into more intense trading relations with the developing countries of the region and, by doing so, can contribute a great deal to the development of the developing countries of the region.
