Abstract

La autora realiza un estudio provisional del impacto en España, sobre la liberalización de las transacciones económicas entre la Unión Europea y el antiguo bloque de países comunistas del este y centro de Europa (CEECs). Con este propósito, describe los acuerdos de comercio entre España, los países del Este y el resto de la Unión Europea a través de la estimación econométrica de un modelo de gravitación.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

This paper makes a tentative forecast of the impact on Spanish trade of the liberalisation of economic transactions between the European Union and the former communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEECs), as envisaged in the association agreements aimed at the eventual enlargement of the EU to include these countries. For this purpose, it describes the trade patterns between the signatory countries Spain, the rest of the EU and CEECs since the fall of the communist bloc and analyses, through the econometric estimation of a gravity model, the determining factors in these patterns. Lastly, starting from the projection of the model estimated, along with several complementary analyses, a prediction of the agreements' effects on Spanish trade is made.
