This research will examine trade and industrial policy in the period centered on the years 1980 through 2000, for each important policy item specifically. It will examine policy changes through describing and assessing the process of policy formation at the time, the industrial and economic conditions that made such policy formation necessary, the process of policy implementation, the state of realization of the intents of policy, industrial and economic conditions following policy implementation, and other matters, not only using objective factual records but also incorporating analysis and evaluative perspectives as well.
