Contact Author Globalization - The Barriers to International Trade The most commonly used barriers to international trade are called tariffs. Tariffs are a kind of tax imposed on imported goods and sometimes exported goods by the importing country. The reasons a country impose taxes if to protect a domestic sector of the economy from foreign competition and to create revenue for the government. Import tariffs raise the price of cheaper imported goods to protect domestic producers from foreign competition.
In turn, these new organizations expedite the globalization of technological innovation. This interaction will continue. Moreover, industries have had to work in the global marketplace to get a proper return on investment for ever more expensive technological developments.
They have formed international marketing organizations. In addition, industries have gone to worldwide production, both to reap the benefits of lower production costs and to lessen trade tensions in countries where imports have had a significant impact on domestic industries.
There has also been transfer of technology through licensing, joint ventures, and the creation of new business entities. These have increased the number of subsidiaries of the multinational corporations and have created new strategic alliances. This has been made possible by a number of communications technologies, such as fiber optics, electronic mail, and particularly satellite communications, a truly revolutionary innovation providing communications worldwide, including developing countries.
This trend toward the formation of joint ventures and international teams for major projects will continue. In fact, one change for the global economy is increased cooperation earlier in the development cycle in industrial research These papers are adapted from the transcripts of the Sixth Convocation of the Council of Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences.

In the past, industry has not favored cooperative research and development because of concern about antitrust violations and loss of proprietary advantage.
Obviously, neither of these considerations has inhibited cooperative research and development at universities.
Since the easing of antitrust regulations for cooperative precommercial research and development and the pressures on industry due to increased worldwide competition, there are indications of a movement toward joint technology efforts.
In the United States, there is a Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation MCC made up of about 20 companies that are cooperating in the precommercial development of technology. Although it is still early, certain examples show promise that these consortia and collaborations will yield good research and development results.
The true test of the success of these joint activities is whether or not research and development will find application in the companies that are supporting it.
Will it be possible to transfer technology from these joint activities back to the companies? Although there are encouraging signs, that answer is still an unknown.
One major impetus for cooperative activity is that it is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to hold on to their competitive edge. These problems could be mitigated through increased collaboration, but there are barriers to cooperative efforts.
The most serious of these is the cultural barrier, or the difficulty that engineers and scientists have in accepting technology from an external source, let alone another nation.
It appears to be less strong in Japan, for Japan has been extremely successful in transferring U. Protectionism is a barrier not only when it is instituted by government but also when it exists between companies.A core element of globalization is the expansion of world trade through the elimination or reduction of trade barriers, such as import tariffs.
Greater imports offer consumers a wider variety of goods at lower prices, while providing strong incentives for domestic industries to remain competitive.

Globalization terminology has four main parameters in its latest form: The free flow of goods and services between countries is due to the reduction of trade barriers. Create an environment for capital flows and inter-state investment.
Scholars and managers in international distribution have advocated a global approach to distribution as the best strategy to cope with the globalization of markets.
This research provides empirical evidence from US multinational firms that globalized distribution is not happening and is not expected to happen in the next five years. Local government regulation and competition are the major.
