Among the most significant developments on the international economic scene in recent years have been those associated with the enlargement of the EEC, some of the problems of which have long been anticipated and some of the consequences of which are even today difficult to foresee.

This study examines problems that may arise for Commonwealth Asian countries from the accession of new countries to the EEC in the field of trade, with a view to seeking appropriate solutions.



Specific Problems of Individual Asian Commonwealth Countries

We can now draw upon the earlier analysis to focus on the specific problems faced by individual Asian Commonwealth countries. The difficulties faced by them will depend on the extent to which enlargement of the EEC will affect the access to different markets of their current and potential exports. It was noted earlier that this will affect not only access to the markets of the new members but also to those of the Six and a number of third countries with which the EEC has preferential trade agreements.
