Trade has played a critical role in increasing food security and employment opportunities in many emerging markets countries and will continue to play a role in their development. As the risk of trade war prompted by protectionism threatens to derail current trade agreements and international trade flows, what should emerging markets countries do to limit their exposure?
The growth of major EM countries like China, India, Mexico and Brazil is moving at a faster pace than developed economies and means EM countries will play an increasingly important role in trade in the next decade. As de-globalization and protectionist policies threatens to derail global trade flows, ASEAN countries and China are already proactively reinforcing intraregional trade, crafting out new trade partnerships and embarking on new infrastructure projects such as the One Belt, One Road Initiative to address these issues. We look from Latin America, across Asian countries to sub-Saharan African to explore how emerging markets are transforming trade patterns and look at the opportunities arising from intraregional trade.
