Why do countries trade?
The development of transportation systems is embedded within the scale and context in which they take place, from the local to the global and from environmental, historical, technological, and economic perspectives. Development can be defined as improving the welfare of a society through appropriate social, political, and economic conditions. The expected outcomes are quantitative and qualitative improvements in human capital e. The development of transportation systems takes place in a socioeconomic context. While development policies and strategies tend to focus on physical capital, recent years have seen a better balance by including human capital issues. Irrespective of the relative importance of physical versus human capital, development cannot occur without both interacting as infrastructures cannot remain effective without proper operations and maintenance.

Countries trade with each other when, on their own, they do not have the resources, or capacity to satisfy their own needs and wants. By developing and exploiting their domestic scarce resources , countries can produce a surplus, and trade this for the resources they need. Clear evidence of trading over long distances dates back at least 9, years, though long distance trade probably goes back much further to the domestication of pack animals and the invention of ships. Today, international trade is at the heart of the global economy and is responsible for much of the development and prosperity of the modern industrialised world. Goods and services are likely to be imported from abroad for several reasons.
7.2 – Globalization and International Trade
The global economy has changed significantly over the past few decades, in the way that it is organised and governed by collaborating nations. These changes have repercussions that not only affect the flow of goods and services between countries, but also the movement of people. So what exactly is the global economy, how does it function, and how does it affect our lives? Here we take a closer look to help you understand the complexities of the force that governs the modern world! The global economy refers to the interconnected worldwide economic activities that take place between multiple countries.
International trade is an exchange of goods or services across national jurisdictions. Inbound trade is defined as imports, and outbound trade is defined as exports. International trade is subject to the regulatory oversight and taxation of the involved nations, namely through customs. In a global economy, no nation is self-sufficient, which is associated with specific flows of goods, people, and information. Each nation is involved at different levels in trade to sell what it produces, to acquire what it lacks, and to produce more efficiently in some economic sectors than its trade partners. International trade, or long-distance trade since there were no nations in the modern sense, has taken place for centuries. Trade now plays an even more active part in the economic life of nations and regions, but it should be taking place only if there is a benefit for the partners involved.

Economic globalization is one of the three main dimensions of globalization commonly found in academic literature, with the two others being political globalization and cultural globalization , as well as the general term of globalization. It is the increasing economic integration and interdependence of national, regional, and local economies across the world through an intensification of cross-border movement of goods, services, technologies and capital. While economic globalization has been expanding since the emergence of trans-national trade , it has grown at an increased rate due to improvements in the efficiency of long-distance transportation, advances in telecommunication , the importance of information rather than physical capital in the modern economy, and by developments in science and technology. International commodity markets , labor markets , and capital markets make up the economy and define economic globalization. Beginning as early as BCE, people in Syria were trading livestock, tools, and other items.
