Trade is one of the most important factors in a country’s development. A country’s level of exports indicates the strength of its manufacturing and entrepreneurial capabilities, as well as the degree to which it is harnessing its natural resources. For transitional countries especially, increased trade is essential if they are to break free from the traps of poverty and construct a more stable and prosperous economy. Given the increasing importance of trade analysis, statistics proves essential to this topic and is beginning to be utilized in fields as diverse as international development, public policy, and political science.
