Abstract

This paper investigates the impact of the European Agreement on Poland's imports using econometric models applied to highly disaggregated trade data. This allows for the controlling for other influences on Poland's trade patterns, specifically the effects of other trade agreements and for the emergence of China. The results show that the European Agreement had transitory but significant trade diverting effects.

Keywords: Economic integration, trade creation and diversion

JEL Classification: F15
