From the Editor:
The International Trade Journal, Vol. 27, No. 2 (April – June 2013)
Dear Readers,
Welcome to the second issue of the Journal’s 27th year of publication. Subjects covered in this volume span the globe, from Canada and the United States to China, India, Jordan, and Brazil.
First to China and India, where Sahoo treats the growing dominance of China in South Asia from an Indian perspective. The topic is especially timely given the traditional and intensified competition between these nations, two of the biggest emerging markets. The author reviews each country’s trade relations in a regional context, then employs a Trade Complementarity Index (TCI) and examines the export competitiveness of each country in world trade and in South Asia. He examines the two countries’ top exports, analyzes the data by industry, and proceeds to study their investments in the region. He concludes by highlighting the importance of factors such as price competitiveness and knowledge of local markets and by making policy recommendations for India.
