Questions related to Trade
I write a question, which is more commercial than technical.
I am looking for some supplier of chemical laboratory consumer materials, like glassware, vacuum hoses, pipettes/micropipettes, etc, located in the Far East, maybe China and available to trade with European companies.
I am looking for an all-round supplier for place few orders a year but with many items, so as to supply my laboratory from.
Can somebody provide me any indication where I can find a list of them?
Thank you in advance for every reply,
Some years ago, I wrote an article about the Uppsala Model of internationalisation. Uppsala is my alma mater so my question is twofold, firstly, how relevant do you think the original Johansson & Vahlne (1977) model is? Secondly, DO you think think the model can be further developed?
My article which is a good introduction to the discussion can be found here:
I find the topic of the Uppsala School of Economics quite intriguing, and I'm inclined to assert that its relevance endures in the contemporary economic landscape. Here's my take on the matter:
- Internationalisation Theory:The Uppsala School's Internationalisation Theory, which emphasises gradual and experiential internationalisation, remains highly relevant. In a world where global markets are increasingly interconnected, the notion of firms expanding gradually and learning from their international experiences holds substantial merit.
- Market Uncertainty:The Uppsala model, with its focus on the role of market uncertainty in shaping internationalisation strategies, is particularly pertinent today. In an era marked by economic volatility and geopolitical uncertainties, the school's insights into how firms navigate unfamiliar markets still provide valuable guidance.
- Networks and Relationships:The Uppsala School places importance on networks and relationships in international business. In today's interconnected world, where collaborations and partnerships are key drivers of success, the emphasis on building strong relationships aligns with contemporary business practices.
- Dynamic Business Environment:The Uppsala School's recognition of the dynamic nature of the business environment is timeless. In an age of rapid technological advancements and changing consumer behaviours, the school's emphasis on adaptability and responsiveness to market dynamics remains pertinent.
- Empirical Validity:Numerous empirical studies have supported the Uppsala model, showcasing its practical applicability. The model's ability to explain and predict the internationalisation patterns of various firms across different industries strengthens its ongoing relevance.
However, it's crucial to acknowledge that the business landscape continues to evolve. While the Uppsala School's core principles endure, contemporary researchers and practitioners may supplement these theories with insights that account for the unique challenges posed by the current global economic context.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this and engage in a deeper discussion on how the Uppsala School of Economics fits into the broader discourse on international business theories.

Hi there, I am planning to conduct a research on 'Enhancing the generation of electricity from RES for stabilizing the energy market'. I am thinking to use 'energy trade index' for the EU countries in the model for different years to calculate the degree of energy market integration. Now, how can I get the dataset or from where can I get the dataset? Thanks in advance.
The major export (in dis-aggregated form) for example cotton, cashew nuts, sisal etc
The major imports ((in dis-aggregated form) for example food and live animals, crude materials, chemicals, machinery and transport etc.
Both major export and import are independent variables. The observation is 12 years ( annual data).
Trade balance as a Dependent variable.
I'm working on a small study on the performance of IDEXX Colilert media after it expires. We have new (unexpired) media and media that expired 4-10 years ago, but we need some expired Colilert packets with expiration dates from 2020-22.
Does anyone have expired media that you would like to trade for unexpired? (I am posting this October 4th, 2023. I anticipate that we will complete the project by Dec 2023.)
Where would I find the trade winds in the Southern Hemisphere and why distribution of rainfall is unequal in India?
I am starting research on the topic of the effects of exchange rate fluctuation on international trade, Can I get a overview on how do I proceed and what all can I analyse for my research
How will climate change affect the trade winds and what are one or two possible side effects that a disruption of the global conveyor belt?
I am doing my research on the topic of the impact of digitalization and trade openness on energy efficiency: comparative study of developed and developing countries. The time pert of my work is 2008-2021.
When a developing country has shifted developed in 2014. How should I consider it? ( my mean is should I consider it as developing or developed?)
What is the second name of trade winds and places at a higher altitude have a cool climate and why and rainfall decrease from the west in northern India?
The question of whether environmental standards hinder free trade is a hotly debated topic. Some argue that these standards create unnecessary barriers, making it difficult for businesses to engage in international trade. On the other hand, proponents argue that environmental standards are essential for ensuring sustainable development and protecting the planet for future generations.
Co-operative are important part in developed and developing countries trades. Including the finacial copperatives (Credit Unions), Coops play an important role on their members economic activities.
Coops are mmber based instituion and does not account its ownership based on the number of shares owned. Coops values and policies encourage democracy and autonomy and provide equal oppotuntiies of its member regarless of the wealth they posses.
I would like to get your feedback, comments review on the cooperative business model and its implication in the local economic development.
Trade facilitation refers to the simplification, standardisation, and automation of customs procedures and other processes related to the movement of goods across borders. It aims to reduce trade costs, increase efficiency, and enhance transparency in international trade. However, the benefits of trade facilitation are not evenly distributed across all income groups and regions. Instead, they often reinforce existing patterns of income inequality and create new ones.
I am trying to find data on the main producers of clean technology and which countries they are exporting these goods to. Does anyone know of a good source to find such data?
I need annual data for two variables for the global panel of countries i.e.
1) Total fisheries production (metric tons)
2) commodity trade and production value (USD, 000)
Any kind of help or guidance will be appreciated.
I am dealing with gravity model of trade. According to the latest version of gravity to control for multilateral resistance, I should generate different fixed effects e.g. (Importer, exporter, time, pair id) fixed effects. I am using Stata 13.
What is the easiest way to create these effects or is there any other way to control for Multilateral resistance factor in gravity model.
waiting for your answers.
I am examining trade differential and CO2 emissions in SSA. I have T=42years and N=37countries. The model is suffering from cross sectional dependence and heteroskedasticity, which may render the fixed effect estimator biased and inconsistent. Which method is suitable? Thanks advance for your humble suggestions.
“Should you be yourself in seeking a job or be the Jack of all trades”?
Please watch this video.
My Friend: Here's the exciting reality: As more and more roles become increasingly complex (be it due to:
* Poor planning
* Poor architecture
* Poor design.)
Let's make this point clear – Each actor (human, Hardware, Smart Software, and Creature) and each legal party (Human, Organization, Country, Political Party) play a role or more in each scenario. These roles may change or continue the same for each scenario. Let me give you an example – Here are some of your roles at home: Father, Husband, Helper, Supporter, care Giver, and others. The roles are two types – Good and Bad. So you may play one or more roles per scenario. Example: You, as a supporter, support your son. In the same scenario, you may also be a Care Giver to your son. In both roles, you be a good supporter and Care Giver, or you may be a lousy supporter and good Care Giver, or you may be terrible in both. What do you think if you fail all the time in both cases? What will the result be? How about you may be very good at both. What do you think if you fail all the time in both cases? What will the result be?
My Friend: I have noticed that only some managers (Interviewers) can define the job. Fewer still can explain what a successful candidate should be able to accomplish or how to succeed in the role can be objectively measured!
My Reply: I think you need help figuring out if the candidate can accomplish the job well, and there is no way you can measure the role objectively and subjectively.
My Friend: Therefore, it becomes my job as a candidate to show the manager how I would make their life better by helping them to define tangible, measurable, and ultimately SMART goals.
Many issues in this statement:
(1) There are existing managers you cannot please because they need to act their roles better.
(2) Goals are not tangible; therefore, you cannot measure goals you do not know.
(3) SMART is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time bound. The SMART method is only helpful if you learn to define enduring goals.
(4) Everything around you in the universe, including concepts, has concrete Enduring Goals from one Goal (The majority of things), two Goals (a few of things), and three Goals (Very Rare), and all of them play their roles very well except Actors and legal parties.
My Friend: Gone are the days when having some specialized skills was adequate to get the job done. Instead, most employers seek Jack's or Jill's of all trades.
Jack or Jill of all trades are hypocrites. They cannot do the job, cannot do anything, and are the "Master of none" It points out that a "Jack of all trades" does not truly master any skill or profession. So, it is usually an insult. The idea of a "Jack of all trades" has existed since the 1600s. Why a company? They need someone like this unless they kiss----- !!!
My Friend: There are myriad reasons that the entire situation is inherently dysfunctional, especially in the software engineering domain. Therefore, it's not adequate just to be yourself. It would help if you aspired to be more in this era.
(1) You want to be a hypocrite and a Master of none!!!
(2) Hypocrites and "masters of none" exist in all fields of knowledge, including the software engineering domain, for many reasons. You will find them everywhere around you.
(3) BE YOURSELF is not adequate!!!!! Are you admitting that you are the Jack of all trades? I know you are a very professional programmer, and you are not a master of none, and I admire this about you. We partnered on many projects, producing excellent, well-cited articles and innovative, applicable ideas.
My Friend: We can have dialog and even debate whether cultural factors promote dishonesty, and sometimes it does, but unfortunately, we live in an imperfect world.
Your statement is true, but you are responsible for your roles, and others judge you based on the roles you play anywhere.
My Friend: It's a chicken and egg problem.
It has nothing to do with a chicken and egg problem. We must build systems and apply our roles within our systems correctly, and to do this, you must -

I am a student and I have a little difficulty conducting this on STATA and would greatly appreciate your support.
I am running a model that tests the impact of labor provisions on the volume of exports.
The model is as follows:
Exports = Labor provisions + depth of trade agreement + country pair fixed effects + exporter fixed effects + importer fixed effects
my data is as follows:
Exporter | Importer | Exports value | Labor provisions | depth of trade agreements
France | Austria | 81789189 | 4 | 1.8
France | Belgium | 79279100 | 5 | 1.3
Basically the data includes each countries exports to all other countries in the world.
I want to know how can i include the country-pair, exporter, and importer fixed effects in my model as control variables using STATA.
Thank you in advance.

ABOUT THE BOOK Herbal medicine is the use of plants for prevention and curing of different ailments/diseases. In general, widespread use in a traditional medicinal system may indicate safety but not efficacy of treatment, especially in herbal medicine, where tradition is almost completely based on remedies containing active principles at very low and ultra-low concentrations. Natural products are obtained from different parts of plants, and their chemical composition varies on different factor; therefore, the effect also varies from person to person. Herbal extracts are prepared on the basis of the information obtained from traditional medical healers. Herbal medicine and natural products have benefited a large number of people in past and have been found to have great benefits in addressing different diseases. So, there is huge potential for future discoveries from plants-based products and other natural products, which, thus, offer great potential in deriving important information about new chemical structures and their new types of action against pathogens. Keeping in mind of above point of view, this book is looking for research outcomes and strategies from academicians, researchers, and workers for better and fruitful outcomes. Objectives/Recommended Topics 1. Herbal medicine and natural products: people, health, and environment 2. Renaissance of traditional herbal medicine 3. Natural products and herbal medicine from medicinal plants 4. Phytochemistry and pharmacology of natural products 5. Herbal medicine in folk tradition 6.

In some recent papers I have find the mentions of hydroxyl-beta-cyclodextrin, but did not find it as a commercial product. Maybe it is the same, or a trade mark of the hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin?
There are not doubts, being China the biggest trading partner for any country in the world , that Yuan will increase its weight as currency reserve , but its limitation and the relative size of domestic capital market will not be functional in replacing the dollar. Chinese pragmatism and long term view approach scarcely adapt to rapid shift at expenses for stability , considering as well the over 2 tn $ of trade value with western partners .
The King Dollar is about to be Dethroned by Yuan…
Just a year after Russia- Ukraine war:
- China’s Yuan replaces US Dollar as most traded currency in Russia.
- China and #France complete first Yuan-settled LNG trade, signaling the end of using the US Dollar for these energy trades.
- US Dollar used in 59% of world’s reserves, down from 72%
- Saudi Arabia and China to build #refinery for 83.7 billion Chinese Yuan ($12.2 billion)
- China and #Brazil agree to use Chinese Yuan to settle trade rather than US dollars
- President of #Kenya tells citizens to get rid of US dollars.
- #India says they will settle trade in Indian rupees with certain countries rather than US dollars
- Chinese yuan passes #Euro to become Brazil's second-largest currency in foreign reserves

Although there is a ban on the drug trade, arms trade, and human trafficking in the whole world. Every country has made strict laws to stop these illegal businesses. In addition, there are international laws. But why these illegal businesses could not be stopped? Every country spends a lot of money on educating the public to prevent these problems. But they could not stop this business, nor did the people stop themselves from getting involved in these problems despite being aware. Now the question is whether the national and international laws to prevent these problems are only shadow policies.
China is now accelerating the combination of internal trade cycle and external trade cycle, what is the impact of this double-cycle trade on environmental protection?
Happy for controversial input on the topic of trade under climate change constraints as carbon markets are heterogenous and local.
Prior to the fall of the Wall, the world was divided into two economic blocs - the Western capitalist bloc led by the United States and the Eastern communist bloc led by the Soviet Union. It is understandable that the division created significant barriers to trade and investment between the two blocs.
How did the fall of this wall impact the trade in Europe as well as world trade?
Hello every one. At the moment, I am conducting a research (PhD Theses) about trade openness and economic growth in Libya. My question is that, should I use nominal or real trade openness index. The index which I am planning to use is trade share. Therefor, I am a bit confused of using this index.
in experiments concerning laboratory trials were conducted to determine the larvicidal activity of the inhibition bacterial growth and insecticides (nanocomposites irradiation and exposure ), the insect growth regulators, IGRs (sumilarv and dudim)
and the plant extracts of neem (Azadirachta indica) and usher (Calotropis procera) against
Aedes aegypti (L.). The toxicity curves showed that the bioinsecticide exposure proved to be more effective than vectobac against A. aegypti larvae by Such a fact was highly pronounced on the basis of LC50 values (concentration which to kill 50% of larvae)
furthermore, I need methods and procedure for using traditional larvicidal temefos or temephos (trade name Abate) is an organophosphate as a positive control to compare outcomes and do correlation among them
at last, should be very glad if somebody meets my requirements full particular with my best regards
Dear all, I would like to run a poisson pseudo-maximum likelihood model in Oxmetrics/using PcGive. The underlying has the trade discrepancy ratio (i.e., imports / reported mirror exports) on the left-hand side and a linear function of variables on the right-hand side.
Does anyone know how to do this, please?
Did Chinese agriculture develop between the 16th and 20th centuries? What is the level of Chinese agriculture compared with other countries of the same time?
Countries worldwide are studying the reduction of carbon emissions and have adopted national and local policies. There are specific achievements in the overall effect. However, there are also many problems, such as a trade crisis, an increase in tariffs, the sudden expansion of goods, a trade deficit, and so on—especially the outbreak of war and the energy shortage. The closed coal-fired power plants are also fully operational, and so on. All this seems to be out of the "Paris Agreement". To sum up in one sentence: world peace is the starting point and umbrella of all things.
How do you view this situation and dilemma?
Today, in different parts of the world we have a different levels of productivity. The countries with low-income and growing populations have lower productivity and the countries with sustainable and growing economies have higher productivity in agriculture. At the same time, growing food instability comes from climate change and various trade, political and ethnic barriers which circle today a global society. I wonder about how a country-specific competitive advantage can help to build efficient global productivity of agriculture to feed the global population.
India has two pangolin species, Indian pangolin and Chinese pangolin. Both these species are highly exploited in wildlife trade, but I did not get any clear picture of how frequently in trade these two species of pangolins are used in India. I want to know this because, among these two species, Indian pangolin has much wider distribution in the country whereas Chinese pangolin has much restricted distribution only in the northeastern parts of India. Thus their exploitation level must not be the same in trade. Please put some light on this matter from your experience and knowledge.

I am currently seeking further information on the current state of international trade in Sri Lanka for my assignment.
1. What is the nature of international trade performance in Sri Lanka since 1980?
2. How will this trade performance have a short-term and long-term impact on the economy?
3. What are your alternative solutions to this economic crisis?

Sometimes the total labor force of a country has a positive correlation with total trade value (Export+ Import). However, some countries' total labor force negatively affects total trade value. Suppose a country has a negative relationship with total trade value. What is the reason behind this? How can that country's total labor force impact that country's foreign trade?
Please let me know if you have any ideas!
The concept of the free-market economy is based on an assumption that no single person or country can influence market prices of goods. But as we may all agree, "dominant" countries in the international trade fix prices of goods to their advantage. For example, the international oil market price is determined by a very few powerful players. Developing countries are "small" players in most traded goods (particularly raw materials) and have to accept prices fixed by dominant countries. What can Africa do to avoid the challenges that bedevil the world economic system resulting in socio-econmic inequality and stratifications between the global North and the South?
Taking into account - among other things - that the number of trade interventions is on a rise (according to Global Trade Alert data), it is worth studying contemporary protectionism in international trade in goods.
In many studies explaining trade, trade barriers are not considered as an explanatory variable. What if all barriers were estimated and an indicator / approximator of protectionism would be created? This would be valuable as it would complete the models explaining trade.
However, are there any protectionist indices (that also allow to compare the trade policies of different countries)?
I'm writing a research paper but somehow stuck on choosing the most suited methodology and literature review. Anyone who is an expert can give and share their valuable suggestions and recommendations.
Obviously, an artist is someone who creates art, just a baker is someone who makes bread. These are simply trades and professions; that is, means by which different people make their livings. Unlike baking however, the difficulty lies in defining "art." Art is pretty much whatever anybody says it is, and an artist is similarly anybody who says he is one. This leaves any definition of "artist" and "art" so vague as to be meaningless. In your opinion, who is an Artist?
I have just started research for my dissertation as an Electronic Engineer and want to look into the use of an automated market maker for Peer to Peer electricity trading.
An automated market maker is a method of settling trades whereby a buyer and seller make trades out of a centralised liquidity pool. This method allows for traders to make trades whenever they want to and also without having to be matched to a corresponding buyer. You can read more here https://medium.com/balancer-protocol/what-is-an-automated-market-maker-amm-588954fc5ff7.
One of the drawbacks of such a system is that buyers and sellers are not matched and therefore it is harder to ensure that the electricity sold and electricity bought are exactly equal (as is required in a power system)? Do you think that this drawback will render an automated market maker impractical?
I have trade volume daily data for 12 years of 500 companies. I wanna divide these companies into high, medium and low volume portfolio using trade volume data. Can someone help me in this regard
Hi All, I am have been assigned a project on Trade and optimisation using machine learning. As this domain is new to me so I dont have enough material to study and start working on.

Except for some early protectionist behaviour by some countries and the consumer panic buying in the early days of the pandemic, global food supply chains have demonstrated remarkable resilience during this whole time. Currently, there are no global food shortages. In fact, the prices did fall slightly at one point. During the 2007-08 economic crisis, however, food prices were severely disrupted. Please share your thoughts on how this occurred and whether global food supply chains have become more sophisticated. Also, what are the implications for "local foods" in the pandemic?
