Sectoral Integration: Agriculture, Transport, Energy and Selected Industries (Main Paper, Working Group B)

  • Hans Willgerodt
Part of the International Economic Association Series book series (IEA)


When general integration of different economies is not attainable within an acceptable time span, policy makers frequently turn to international economic integration of individual branches of production. This sectoral integration is sometimes intended to be an indirect way of accomplishing general economic integration: by successive steps one economic section after another is to be included in a scheme of integration. It is hoped that total integration will eventually result from this piecemeal procedure.
