摘要

l   The Viner approach considers only the import side of an economy.

l   The export side of an economy should also be considered as well.

l   Some governments put more emphasis on the export side.

l   There is two good reasons for governments’ emphasis on the export side:

ü  wants to help local firms to compete in foreign markets;

ü  This type of FTAs (aggressive FTAs) are beneficial for the market.
