Therefore the paper concluded that based on the current situation of the SAARC countries, they are trade competitors and mutual trade agreements among the countries will leads to export market distortion, harming welfare of the region.
Thus, a country has an absolute advantage in the production of a product when it is more efficient than any other country in producing it.

Consequently, firms can charge relatively high prices for new products Porter, According to Krugman, and Obstfeldthe new trade theory began to emerge in the s when a number of economists pointed out that the ability of firms to attain economies of scale has important implications for international trade.
In addition to that the following sub-objectives are expected to be achieved: Cited 25th — 30th, July In Sri Lanka, however, export and import economy led to unsymmetrical export portfolio which has continuously earned deficit trade balances.
