International Trade

International trade is the exchange of goods and services across national boundaries. Exports are the merchandise individuals or nations sell. On the other hand, imports are the goods individuals or nations purchase.


Global Opportunities

Major changes that took place in the twentieth century have had significant effect on international trade in the new century and have provided unprecedented opportunities.

The age of globalism has brought about worldwide distribution, the internet, satellite communications, and speedy transportation systems. People all over the world seek the same luxuries and standards. They see things and, naturally, they want them.

Globalization is no longer a buzzword; it is a reality. National governments have a large stake in its outcome because this change affects their societies. As the process goes forward, the need for harmonizing interstate laws becomes more serious. Therefore international trade cannot be a state process, and business that make products and attempt to sell them across borders must certainly adjust.


CTIP an advocate of Global Citizenship


The term “citizenship” refers to an identity between a person and a city, state or nation and their right to work live and participate politically in a particular geographic area. When combined with the term “global”, it typically defines a person who places their identity with a “global community” above their identity as a citizen of a particular nation or place. The idea is that one’s identity transcends geography or political borders and that responsibilities or rights are or can be derived from membership in a broader  class: “humanity”. This does not mean that such a person denounces or waives their nationality or other, more local identities, but such identities are given “second place” to their membership in a global community.
