What is Trade Opportunity

Handbook of Research on Climate Change Impact on Health and Environmental Sustainability
Trade opportunity is the scope of nation to increase its trade. Basically it is a trade gap of a country with its trade partners. Researchers can estimate trade value and measure how well a bilateral trade flow performs relative to the mean as predicted by the gravity model. So, the potential trade gap means how far below the actual trade value is from the predicted trade value. This potential trade gap suggests that there is a scope to increase the export of climate friendly goods (CFG) with trading partners. The total estimated export potential trade gap in CFG in Asia was around $30 billion US dollar in 2008.

This paper examines trade performance of climate friendly goods using some trade indices for South Asia and Asia Pacific countries during 2002 - 2008. Climate friendly goods (CFG) are those goods which are less harmful to environment. Paper identifies performance of Asia Pacific region in CFG trade with other nations. Most of the countries in Asia are importers of climate friendly goods and technologies. The Comparative advantage analyses indicate that Hong Kong, China, and Japan have comparative advantage in the production of CFG goods. Pakistan, Sri-Lanka, and India prefer to trade in CFG regionally and have shown interest in production and trade of clean coal technologies (CCT). East and South East Asia regions have comparative advantage in Solar Photovoltaic Systems (SPVS) and Energy Efficient Lighting (EEL). Japan, China, Malaysia and Macao show good in 2008 for SPVS.
