Resource description

In a global economic environment still reeling from the financial crisis and a vast contraction in world trade, the fight between countries for market share – and ultimately revenue – has become even more intense. Governments have faced pressure from their constituents to save and create jobs and wealth, and in the complex system governing commerce between countries, desperate times seem to have inspired desperate protectionist measures. Having in 2009 become the world's leading exporting nation, built on a decades-long booming economy very successful in gaining global market share by means of cheaper exports, China has reason enough to fear protectionism.
