Trade and globalization have improved the lives of billions of people in developing countries. Currently, developing countries representing billions of people, including China, India and Mexico, have adopted policies enabling their citizens to take advantage of globalization. For many of the world's poorest countries, the primary problem is not too much globalization, but their inability to participate in it.
