A Chain Reaction? Effects of Mega-Trade Agreements on Latin America
A new Bertelsmann Foundation study, A Chain Reaction? Effects of Mega-Trade Agreements on Latin America, shines light on the potential effects of the newest wave of proposed free trade agreements on Latin America.
With original data based on multi-sector trade modeling conducted in collaboration with the Ifo Institute, the authors consider how the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the Free Trade Area of Asia Pacific (FTAAP) and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) might affect growth, trade and import/export portfolios throughout the region.
Co-authored by Bertelsmann Foundation’s Latin America specialist Samuel George and the World Bank’s Cornelius Fleischhaker, the study goes inside mega-deals that could have a tangible effect on both the composition and direction of Latin American trade flows. Who are the big winners? Who are the losers? We take a look at the numbers.
