Some may think that “fair trade” is about ensuring balanced national trade flows – or a zero trade deficit – similar to what President Trump is pushing for in the United States. However, “fair trade” is a global movement to develop transparent supply chains that support equity in trade for socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable development. Backed by consumer support across the world, the growing demand for fair trade has promoted sustainable economic development by facilitating trade between developing economies and advanced economies through both private-sector and public-sector initiatives.
