APMacro: IES Trade Alliances

Summit Team Scoreboard

On the day of the Summit, your team will receive 2 Trade Alliance Cards. An Alliance Card is proof of your membership in a Trade Alliance. Just a name on the Trade Alliance form is not enough to prove your team is in the Trade Alliance. The card represents your legitimate membership in the Trade Alliance.

Special note to Division 3 Countries: Be sure to join an alliance with at least one Division 1 Country and make sure they agree to buy your Foreign Aid Voucher. Remember, 1 Foreign Aid Voucher is worth 5 WELCOs.

In the world of the Summit, a universal trade tariff is in place that requires you to pay a 1 LESCO payment for each traded coupon. The only way to avoid the tariff is to join a Trade Alliance. A legal Trade Alliance has two to six members. You may join up to two Trade Alliances, and you must have one Division 3 Country in the alliance.

During the Trade Session at the Summit, you and your team will try to meet the import goals from your Strategic Plan. It is your responsibility to track your trades and pay a tariff for any exchanges that occur outside of your Trade Alliances. When you exchange coupons with countries on your alliance list, those trades are tariff free. For each trade with a country not on your alliance list, you must pay a 1 LESCO trade tariff. Tariffs are payable to the Summit Bank. The Summit Bank will verify your tariff payment by placing the official bank stamp pn your Strategic Plan form. You must have a bank stamp, verifying your payment for each coupon from a country outside of your alliance. Failure to pay tariffs is an automatic disqualification of your team from the Summit.
