As indicated before, import-competing ﬁrms and exporters are the prime examples of the type of ﬁrms that can overcome their collective action impediments. I argue that the same counts for import-dependent ﬁrms. However, before discussing the circumstances under which importdependent ﬁrms are expected to mobilize and enter the political arena, I will ﬁrst provide a more detailed characterization of this type of ﬁrms in the next section. 20 Business Lobbying and Trade Governance Import-dependent ﬁrms and their trade policy preferences In the Introduction I have given a broad deﬁnition of import-dependent ﬁrms and said a few words about their trade policy preferences.
Second, the probability of a successful lobbying campaign is higher when ﬁrms have a standing organization at their disposal than in the case where ﬁrms have to do without such an organization. , 1996; Bouwen, 2002; Gray and Lowery, 1996; Hall and Deardorff, 2006). Groups which can show to their (potential) members that they have access to the policy-making process – that is, have built credibility by providing (critical) access goods to public ofﬁcials – enhance their chances of political mobilization on speciﬁc issues.
In recent years the EU has been especially active in pursuing PTAs with Asian countries, although the recently launched negotiation with the US on a PTA (the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP) is also notable in this regard. ” In order to study the involvement of import-dependent ﬁrms in trade politics, I have decided to focus on their role within the context of the latter type. The system of EU’s TDI policy is a ﬁtting setting to analyze the political role of import-dependent ﬁrms because, ﬁrst of all, in TDI policy “import-dependent ﬁrms are, together with import-competing ﬁrms, the most important societal interests” (Eckhardt, 2013: 992).
