Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this special issue is to get a deeper understanding of global trade and investment flows and how they affect the competitiveness of economies. There have been some tectonic shifts in global flows both in terms of actual goods and services and also in terms of financial capital. The emerging economies have been aggressively competing in markets, which were hitherto dominated by the so-called developed world. This has been facilitated by the increased orientation towards openness in the emerging economies as also the other developing countries. These developments have been essential for strategically positioning them in the global marketplace and have been instrumental in improving the well-being of citizens across the globe. Findings: The papers offer rich insights in to the different angles of the global trade and capital flows and are nuanced to specific countries or regions. They will contribute to a better understanding of the various issues and will be of great use to academics for further research and practitioners in their new policy initiatives in the area of improving their performance be it in terms of improving growth and exports or in terms of attracting capital from the capital surplus countries.
