The two regional economies of Ireland are located in a world of increasing economic
interdependence. Market completion within the European Community is at an advanced
stage, January 1st, 1993 being the symbolic start to open borders. The newly democratised
economies of Central and Eastern Europe, after a painful process of restructuring, are
likely to become more integrated into the wider world market economy. In North America,
the NAFTA will build links between the economies of Canada, the USA and Mexico. Japan,
together with the other market economies of the Pacific basin and China are co-operating
increasingly in the economic sphere. In the wider world, the progressive extension of the
provisions of the QATT are guiding the global economy towards free trade. None of this
is happening without debate, argument, mistrust and even rancour. Nevertheless, it is
happening and many people believe that these developments will eventually result in
improved growth and living standards with few permanent losses to citizens of the
developed and less developed world alike.
