BRICS Trade Strategy: Time for a Rethink

Source: Centre for Economic Policy Research

From Executive Summary:

At a time when each of the BRICS’ exports are falling and when only India is expected to see faster economic growth in 2015 and 2016, this report argues that the trade strategy of the BRICS should be rethought. Greater attention should be placed on the unilateral actions taken by governments that limit imports and that artificially inflate exports. The report will show that, on average, every day since the Global Crisis began the commercial interests of at least one BRICS nation have been harmed by the imposition of a foreign trade distortion. The BRICS ought to have a strong interest in discouraging and unwinding protectionism.
