In addition, the activities of the multinational enterprises helped to integrate the economic sector into the European Union through the increased trading relations between Spain and the rest of Europe. Accession to the EC required the elimination of tariff and non-tariff barriers on trade between Spain and the other member states, and the adoption of the common external tariff. As the latter was much lower than the level of tariff protection that prevailed prior to Spain joining the EC, the country’s decision to enter the European regional trading bloc effectively represented a significant move in the direction of liberalisation even on trade with third countries.

A deficit in a country’s balance of payments can be explained in several ways. It may be due to an excess of national demand over domestic productive capability, or by an insufficient level of national saving to finance the gross capital formation. Or it may be due to the lack of competitiveness in the national economic system, and the inability of domestic producers to match the quality, technological intensity or price competitiveness of goods and services offered by producers elsewhere. In the Spanish case, the deterioration in the external position can be understood by reference to all of the above explanations, but it is the lack of competitiveness which has attracted the greatest amount of discussion, perhaps because it is often seen as an intractable problem.

The final outcome of integration is distinct patterns of production and increasing volumes of trade among the members of the regional integration agreement, with greater mobility of factors eventually eliminating price and income disparities. In short, the traditional theory of integration, strongly grounded upon the assumptions of the neo-classical theory of international trade, predicts convergence in the income and living standards of the area. However, it also recognises that not all sectors benefit equally, given that adjustment costs may fall disproportionately on sectors and regions that exhibit high levels of comparative disadvantage.
