Enticing opportunities: The role of Industrial Partnerships in a shifting economic landscape.


Industrial cooperation and countertrade have now become a common mode of transaction for trading.

Some 132 to 192 countries currently require offset in one form or another, and around 25% to 30% of world trade is viewed as countertrade. The annual global market size for offset and countertrade is estimated to be between US$200 billion and US$500 billion.
