EIAS Lunch Briefing
June 8, 2010
Cheaper imports provoke requests for protection by the domestic producers, particularly when the production abroad results from the relocation of productive capacity to lower-cost jurisdictions. But importers in the home country, and behind them end-consumers and users of intermediates, oppose these protectionist moves.
Prof. Sylvain Plasschaert, who specialized in ‘economic developments in China’ and in ‘international business’ will present a few typical cases of such conflicts and analyzes the variables that determine their origins and outcomes in the complex international economy.
Robert MacLean is one of the discussants at this event.
