    According to Kawai and Wignaraja (J Asian Econ 22(12)–, ), many Asian nations vigorously pursue “global free trade agreements” (FTAs) with advanced nations (e.g., USA and Europe).

This book studies the main causes, consequences and nature of the Asia-Pacific's new free trade agreement (FTA) trend, and its implications for the global economy. It explores the FTA policies of the region's trade powers and offers conceptual and theoretical perspectives on the relationship between economic bilateralism and regionalism.
