So far, you have seen international organizations such as the WTO, the IMF and the World Bank support world trade, but that is only part of history. Where world trade really has a boost, there are trade agreements (also known as trade blocs). This is where the term „global economic integration“ takes its feet – the process of changing barriers between nations and between nations to create a fully integrated global economy. Trade agreements differ from the level of free trade they allow between members and non-members; everyone has a unique level of economic integration. We will examine four: the Regional Trade Agreement (RTA) (also known as the „free trade area“), a customs union, common markets and economic unions. Regional trade agreements are trade agreements between two or more partners (nations). Almost all countries are part of at least one ATR.
In an RTA, countries are „squatting“ and forming an international community that facilitates the exchange of goods and services between them. Let us look at some examples of regional trade agreements: customs unions are agreements between countries in which the parties agree to allow free trade of products within the customs union, and they agree on a common external tariff (CET) for imports from the rest of the world. It is this CET that distinguishes a customs union from a regional trade agreement. It is important to note that, although trade within the Union is comprehensive, customs unions do not allow the free movement of capital and labour between Member States. The customs union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, founded in 2010, is an example. These countries have removed trade barriers between them, but they have also agreed on some common policies on relations with third countries.
