In the first part of the lecture, world trade flows including Latin Americn and its important trade partners such as the United States of America, China, and the European Union are presented. The current trends in WTO and FTA negotiations are further analyzed with special interest in global value chains. In the second part of the lecture, a set of protectionist trade measures are analyzed based on real case studies including tariff increase, anti-dumping, subisides, and non-tariff barriers to trade.
