International trade, a main contributor to economic growth, has significantly reduced the ranks of those living in extreme poverty. But as globalization continues, countries must also consider the impacts their trade practices have on their domestic economies, social structures and the environment. This study from the Economist Intelligence Unit uses a sustainable trade index to rank a group of Asian countries on how well they promote responsible trade. getAbstract recommends this informative report to executives and trade policy officials.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the Hinrich Foundation Sustainable Trade Index measures,
- Which Asian countries maintain sustainable trading practices and which do not, and
- How governments can promote “profit, people and planet.”
