Free trade agreements have become an important element of global trade. The creation of free trade agreements among countries is induced by the expected advantages that such agreements provide to each member country. According to international trade theory, members of free trade zones enjoy more efficient allocation of resources among themselves, increased economies of scale, and a bigger selection of goods and services at lower prices. But for non-member countries, free trade zones represent a trading disadvantage. Non-members have to comply with requirements imposed by the members of the agreement to retain access to the member countries' markets. Such is the case of many export-oriented Japanese firms.
