A Look Inside
Main Description
This volume contains background papers presented at the Seminar on Interregional Cooperation in Trade and Investment: Asia-Latin America, which took place 15-16 February 2000 in Bangkok. The studies indicate that the trade and investment relationships between the two regions, though growing, are far below their potential. The current pattern of trade is asymmetrical which partly reflects the different paths of industrial development that have been followed in the two regions. The studies also dispel the nation that poor logistics, in the form of geographical distance and high transportation costs, are primarily responsible for the low levels of interregional trade.
