3 In practice ‘reciprocity’ cannot be separated from other elements of economic relations, like economic strength, structure and growth, secondary protection, and so forth. In effect, rather than ‘reciprocity’ it may happen that ‘asynchronity’ occurs which favours the stronger ‘partner’. See, for example, Inotai and Kiss (Chapter 9) on the experience of Central and Eastern Europe with the Association Agreements with the European Union. 4 The foreign producer may use this extra rent for upgrading and diversifying his production.

This tariff cut applies to all industries unless certain industries can convince their governments that they need more protection. The formula approach brought considerable tariff reductions (see also Baldwin 1987:42–3) of about 35 per cent in the Kennedy Round, some 30 per cent in the Tokyo Round (1974–9), and 38 per cent in the Uruguay Round. Post-Uruguay Round MFN tariffs on manufactured goods in developed countries will come down to below 4 per cent. The political economy of trade policy therefore makes the multilateral approach of the GATT a more promising and necessary way towards an open world trading system.

The resulting pressures for corporate restructuring and downsizing, and the subsequent acceleration of structural change, often involving at least temporary unemployment, have all contributed to a growing perception that the process of globalisation is closely intertwined with an increasing level of uncertainty and vulnerability. Cross-border trade is a form of economic integration which has been dubbed a ‘shallow integration’ as opposed to a ‘deep integration’ at the production level. While the latter establishes longer lasting and deeper linkages between economic agents located in different countries, arm’s length trade ends with the initial transaction (UNCTAD 1994).
