As a general concept, globalisation implies increasing interdependence among countries and their citizens. Recently, however, the emphasis has been on economic globalisation, which can be defined as "the ongoing process of greater economic interdependence among countries, reflected in an increasing amount of cross-border trade in goods and services facilitated by improvements in transport and communications technology, an increasing volume of international financial flows and increasing flows of labour" (Fischer 2003:3).
