Abstract or Summary
  • This study examines the impact on Pacific Northwest seafood exporters of the European Union Directive on packaging and packaging waste management. The study of the official text of the proposed Directive was the starting point of our analysis. This allowed us to give a presentation of the EU Directive and to point out what factors would be important in order to assess how the Directive could affect firms and affect them differently whether they are located in the Pacific Northwest or the European Union. An economic model of trade between two countries based on excess supply and excess demand curves was used to represent how the implementation of the European Union Directive would affect the excess supply curve and therefore explain part of the potential impact on the level of exports. In order to assess with more precision the impact on the industry supply in both regions, a case study of seafood companies and packaging suppliers in the Pacific Northwest and the European Union was constructed using surveys at the primary data collection vehicle. From the information obtained from firms and using our economic model of trade between two countries, we showed that European Union firms currently have a modest advantage over Pacific Northwest firms in meeting the requirements of the EU Directive.
