In this edition of the Trade & Industry Monitor we focus on the impact of the global economy on developing countries, particularly in terms of the measures and responses available to them in the industrial and trade policy arenas. In our Special Focus article, Ha-Joon Chang notes that the changing global environment has put new restrictions on the conduct of industrial policy. Especially for developing countries, the available policy space is constantly under pressure. However, for Chang this does not spell the end of industrial policy; it only means that countries need to be more creative in policy design and…
Economists generally see industrial policy as a very broad concept incorporating a range of other mainly but not exclusively, economic policies as part of the industrial policy toolbox. Trade and competition policy are at least at a theoretical level firmly part of this. However in practice, in the cut and thrust of trade negotiations, and the legalese of merger filings this is often forgotten. In this edition of the Monitor we feature a number of articles which remind us of the often profound implications which trade and competition policy can have for industrial development. In the article by Xavier Carim…

This edition of the Trade & Industry Monitor considers various aspects of trade policy and its influence on development and growth. The first article by Cosatus Tanya van Meelis and Neva Makgetla looks at the impact of trade on economic structure, and is a response to Xavier Carim of the dtis article, South Africas Trade Policy: Ten Years On, which was published in the September 2004 Monitor edition. The article points out that simply growing trade in its current form might assist in maintaining macroeconomic stability, but will not do much to create employment or support increased equality. It suggests…
This edition of the Monitor is loosely themed around trade policy in support of the breakthrough in World Trade Organisation (WTO)negotiations on negotiations. Whilst some have hailed this as an historic breakthrough partly because for the first time all member states have agreed to the (eventual) abolition of all forms of agricultural subsidies not all trade watchers are as optimistic. The Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, for example, has argued that the success was achieved only because the bar was set exceedingly low.
In this edition of the Trade & Industry Monitor, we focus on various aspects of economic development: high-technology product trade performance; whether technology usage facilitates goods and services exports; lessons on successful poverty reduction efforts; and how constructive partnerships between governments, civil action groups and other parties can assist development efforts.

In the first paper on the theme of dynamic products, TIPS' chief economist Dirk van Seventer and former TIPS researcher Katherine Gibson note that SA's presence in dynamic world product markets is low, with the exception of diamonds. Moreover, Van Seventer and Gibson's research suggests that of SA's top 10 products (by market share) in the dynamic products group, more…
