State Trading in Hungary, Poland and Romania

  • M. M. Kostecki


The following analysis, which is closely related to the findings of the preceding chapter, deals with the three East European foreign trade regimes at the moment of their accession to the GATT. It determines to what extent a state-trading unit in itself constitutes a barrier to trade; and how protectionist and, eventually, discriminatory policies are implemented both through the state-trading link and trade-control measures. Finally, it analyzes the bilateral trade arrangements and deals with problems posed by the CMEA in the GATT.
