    Open Trade or Protectionism?

    Developments in trade policy since 1995

    Globally, the growth of international trade is outpacing production, and investments are increasing more rapidly still. This study by the Swedish National Board of Trade shows that the twelve years following 1995 saw a period of increased openness and free trade. Meanwhile, progress in trade policy has been limited in recent years. A common impression obtained from various investigations is that support for protectionism is on the rise, perhaps as an effect of globalization.
