Abstract

International trade between countries and across regions has existed for centuries. Moreover, international trade saw a significant increase in its growth from 1950 to 2000, with trade volume growing at an average rate of 6% per year. The concept of trade comprises both exporting and importing, and the growth of international trade is influenced by various factors, with economic growth playing a significant role, as has been the subject of much scholarly research.
