The chapter begins with a brief historical overview of the principal catalysts, both economic and political for European economic integration, before moving on to discuss the theoretical foundations of economic integration and the economic and trade implications of the Treaty of Rome. The chapter then proceeds to outline the development of the EU’s trade policy and how this was affected by its deepening and widening, as well as the impact international factors had on that process. The principal areas of EU trade policy are also covered – in particular its multilateral aspects, its bilateral and plurilateral arrangements and its unilateral policy covering the Generalised Scheme of Preferences or GSP. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the future direction and re-calibration of the EU’s trade policy towards relationships with Far Eastern economies via its ‘Trade for All’ policy document.

This overview chapter begins by defining how we have used some terms in order to make the discussion that follows clear to all readers of the Handbook of Research on International Entrepreneurship Strategy: Improving SME Performance Globally. We start with internationalization and globalization, after which we follow with strategy, SMEs, born globals, performance and entrepreneurial. Then the various theories and strategies regarding internationalization are outlined in order to lay down the parameters of what strategies are available to the usual SME. Overall, this Handbook more specifically researches which factors influence the pace at which SMEs enter foreign markets, and, once having entered them, which factors cause those SMEs to increase their commitment to that foreign market.
