The importance of International Business & Economic Integration is well recognized and has become an unavoidable element in most economic policy decisions. European Union (EU) is one of the biggest manifestations of integration. Business and Economic integration is a process by which a group of countries try to secure access to a wider market and reinforce growth to attain a higher level of national welfare. It involves the recognition that a partnership among countries can achieve this goal in a more efficient way than by unilateral and independent pursuance of peace and prosperity.
Business & Economic Integration have three main dimensions. First is Integration through Business and human migration. Second through trade in goods and services. Third through movements in Capital and financial market integration. The interdependence of economic life among countries created a situation in which national economic problems increasingly became a matter of international concern. Coordination of economic policies and international economic integration may ease, and even solve most of international economic problems as well as sustain peaceful environment
Business & Economic efficiency can be fostered by a policy of free trade which stimulates competition. It rationalizes production of goods and services and provide for a higher average standard of living and greater welfare in the future particularly of the integrated group of countries and impliedly the world at large.
Integration will be beneficial when cooperation and coordination of policies takes place instead of the disintegrated exercise of sovereign economic power through conflicting policies. The literature stressed that economic and business integration with open international trade and business exchanges of goods and services inhabit international and domestic conflicts. It is obvious that whenever mutual business and economic interests are intact, the severity of conflicts are reduced.
This conference will also underscore on the models of countries interdependence as a solution for conflicts and welfare.
