The objectives of IJTGM are to become a main source of analyses and perspectives on the issues of economics and trade in order to be an effective channel of communication between policy-makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions. It emphasises problems of international significance and offers important lessons for policy-makers and the wide audience which participates in the policy debate in such a way that it promotes and coordinates developments in the field of international trade and economic growth. The journal will emphasise national, regional, international and global realities. It applies a rigid peer-reviewed approach, which aims to publish only very selective, substantive new empirical, methodological and theoretical research.
IJTGM provides a vehicle to help professionals, leading professional economists, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of international economics, trade, and business.
