The Emergence of the Pacific Alliance and Implications for Korea

In June 2012, four Latin American coun-tries on the Pacific coast (Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru) declared the establish-ment of a new economic integration initia-tive within the region, and consequently launched the Pacific Alliance. Since then, it has been making rapid progress and is ex-pected to open up new horizons in regional economic integration. Under recent circum-stances in which existing regional commu-nities, such as MERCOSUR (Southern Cone Common Market) and ALBA (Boli-varian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America), are faltering, the Pacific Alliance draws increasing attention from the world as it advocates open regionalism. Of the member countries of the Pacific Alliance, all four have already signed FTAs. The intention of these countries, however, is to deepen existing economic integration through the Pacific Alliance. Narrowing geographical distance by working on the joint project of transportation infrastructure and eliminating cross-border visa require-ments to encourage freer movement of hu-man resources are key pillars of their plan.

Risk-based food safety and quality governance at the international law, EU, USA, Canada and France: Effective system for Lebanon as for the WTO accession

Following the establishment of the Lebanese food safety authority (LFSA) in the food safety draft law, this study aims to find the appropriate food safety governance system in Lebanon in accordance with the risk analysis and the clauses of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Agreement. It describes the regulatory and institutional food safety governance system developed in USA, EU, Canada and France using inventory approach and in-depth interviews at institutional level to profit from their previous experience in this field.

Does Economic Globalization affect Regional Inequality? A Cross-country Analysis

This paper investigates the relationship between economic globalization and regional inequality in a panel of 47 countries over the period 1990‚Äď2007, using a measure of globalization that distinguishes the different dimensions of economic integration. The results show that there is a positive and statistically significant association between economic globalization and the magnitude of regional disparities. Countries with a greater degree of economic integration with the rest of the world tend to register higher levels of regional inequality. This finding is robust to the inclusion of additional explanatory variables and to the choice of the specific measure used to quantify the relevance of spatial inequality within the sample countries. Our analysis also reveals that the spatial impact of economic globalization is greater in low- and middle-income countries, whose levels of regional disparities are on average significantly higher than in high-income countries.

Regional Economic Integrations in the Post-soviet Eurasia: An Analysis on Causes of Inefficiency

In post-Soviet Eurasia, established several regional economic integrations in order to develop the regional economic cooperation and adapt to the world economy. These integrations, participated by the countries also referred to as the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), have remained on paper as ineffective formations that are far away from achieving their common goals. The findings obtained through the statistical data of the countries included in the region concerning the causes of inefficiency can be listed as inadequacy in converging with the rules of market economy and in adapting to the world economy, differences in macroeconomic structures (national income and income distribution, industrialization, national and foreign direct investments, foreign trade capacity and balance of payments), regional conflicts of interest and claim of power, lack of common goals, geographical position, and the contradictions created by being member to the World Trade Organization (WTO) and to regional integrations.

Trade Patterns and Determinants of International Specialization Structure between ASEAN and China

China and ASEAN are recognized as the most important markets in the world, hence they have emerged as global factories and parts production bases. And trade between China and ASEAN is rapidly expanding and ASEAN has taken position as one of China’s three major trading partners. Over the last 20 years, there has been a rapid increase in intra-industry trade where differentiated products are traded within the same industries between China and ASEAN countries. Empirical analysis on determinants of the international specialization structure between China and ASEAN countries shows that the deepening structure of vertical international specialization between the two regions over the past 20 years has been directly influenced by variables representing national characteristics, such as distance (trading cost), common language, the size of the national economy and income gap as well as intra-regional foreign direct investment.

International Cases referring to the Vienna Convention Rules on Treaty Interpretation and Interpretative Mechanisms in Regional Trade Agreements

Treaty interpretation is an important process through which meaning is given to what have allegedly been agreed between states. In interpreting international agreements, international tribunals often refer to general or customary rules of treaty interpretation codified in Articles 31 to 33 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. In the event states provide specific rules of interpretation in a particular treaty, such rules are applied.

Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership / V. S. Seshadri

Efforts are underway to forge a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the United States and the European Union for which negotiations have commenced this year. It is proposed to be an ambitious free trade and investment agreement, whose focus will not only be towards achieving deeper liberalisation of their trade and investment regimes, but also towards bringing about greater convergence, if not harmonization or mutual recognition, of standards and regulations across all products and services sectors. With both economies having a significant share in the world GDP and world trade, the two trade majors are also hoping that some of the WTO plus disciplines that they can agree on, including in areas like competition policy, raw materials and energy and state owned enterprises, could provide a basis for future multilateralisation. If the two parties are able to conclude such an agreement, it could have a profound impact on world trade as a whole, not only on the bilateral trade and investment relations between the two parties. India could also be affected as a result. Developments in this regard will need to be carefully monitored and a suitable strategy devised. The paper briefly dwells on several of these aspects.
