Beyond the exchange of goods and services between countries, blocks or regions, international markets affect the sustainable development of nations. They also allow a country to specialize in the production of goods and services more efficiently and at lower costs.
Countries need to focus their production of goods and services based on strategies that cause less environmental impact, increase social and environmental competitiveness and provide greater equity and welfare to society.
