Description - Trade Liberalization and APEC by Jiro Okamoto

Trade and investment liberalization under Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) looked to be going well in the mid 1990s. However, the subsequent Early Voluntary Sectoral Liberalization (EVSL) initiative, which was an ambitious attempt to stimulate comprehensive regional liberalization by accelerating tariff reduction in selected sectors, turned out to be a failure. This book analyses the attempted trade liberalizations under the APEC framework by conducting case studies on policy processes of six members. Using the 'two-level game' model as an analytical framework, the volume is an incredibly useful tool for understanding trade liberalization and its implementation. An impressive cohort of contributors come together in this wonderful collection to provide a book that will be of great use to students and academics involved with international trade and economic integration as well of being a useful reference tool for policy-makers across the world.
