It has created a feeling of belonging and security, hence improving foreign relations and diplomacy between the three countries (Xuepeng and Ornelas 29).
Free trade: This is the removal of trade barriers and restrictions to allow countries to trade freely and fluidly (Hanson 18). Free trade is based on the premise that provided there is a common good, countries can agree to lower or completely eliminate national trade barriers to facilitate free movement of people and goods.
Free trade zone: This is an area that has been set aside specifically for the facilitation of free trade. Free trade zones feature excellent business infrastructure, little or no government taxes and favorable labor laws to support importation of labor from all over the world (ILO 16).
An interdisciplinary approach will be employed to study the impacts of free trade on international development since the beginning of the 20th century. The researcher will examine past studies and use their findings and inferences to support arguments for free trade and its role in international development. The researcher will also use qualitative and quantitative techniques to conduct research so that the hypothesis can be validated or disproved. The research will focus on patterns of international development and free trade and examine them separately. After that, both concepts’ patterns will be compared to establish whether any relationships exist between them and if there are, what kinds of relationships they are. The researcher will use case studies to demonstrate real examples of the impact of the impact of free trade on development. Finally, appropriate conclusions will be made on the impact of free trade on international development and its ability.
It is anticipated that the findings of this research will prove the validity of the hypothesis by revealing that international development is best helped through free trade. It is also anticipated that the findings
