Today, there are economic forces at work which are forcing governments to re-think their past business relationships amongst other countries so that they prosper in tomorrow’s markets.
For example. the potential for economic gain due to newly discovered economic quantities of natural gas and oil, located from Cyprus to the Levant, brings Israel closer to its Mediterranean neighbor Cyprus. With the potential to drill for and recover oil and gas and have it processed on a to-be-built refinery of Cyprus, adds value to the asset side of the ledger of both countries. This economic relationship did not exist in the year 2,000.
The expansion of the relationship between Russia and China in oil and gas recovery in Siberia also allows both countries to prosper. The added-value to Russia, by recovering earthbound assets and turning them in to products for sale, is gigantic. Here, the good will historically embraced by both Giants is further enhanced with economic cooperation.
Another example of a future enhancement to manufacturing production will be the meteorite enhanced super-strong diamonds of Siberia. Machine tool makers in Germany and Sweden will surely want to add value to their aerospace grade cutting tools by acquiring these diamonds to add to their fabrications. The tools will then easily slice through Titanium and other alloys use in aircraft production. As this relationship further develops, Germany, Sweden, and Russia benefit.
In Canada, oil shale is being produced which, when proper transportation can be secured, will aid China and Canada in their mutual growth.
Advanced in horticulture, by European laboratories, will allow Chilean roses to be shipped to America in even fresher form than they are presently. This assists American/Chilean relationships as well as European governments.
Mining of rare earths in Mountain Pass, California, due to increased investment by entrepreneurs, will help electronics manufacturers in Brazil and Malaysia to be more profitable. This helps the governments of the three countries to have good dialogue. Commercial prosperity can triumph over political guffaws.
The governments which allow for their citizens to engage in international commerce today, will benefit superbly in tomorrow’s reality of increased profitability through a higher Gross Product.
