Trade is when you buy and sell goods and services. It can happen anytime. If any country wants goods from a different country they will trade. The process starts here. First, they manufacture goods and check their quality in factories. Then, these goods will be shipped to different places around the world using ships or other vehicles. After all goods are shipped, they are ready to be used. Malaysia is rich with palm oil. Many countries trade with Malaysia for their oil. Malaysia is one of the biggest palm oil suppliers. People trade for palm oil and exchange it with money. They use this palm oil in many daily products such as lipstick, shampoo, soap and more. You can trade money for food, toys, clothes, paper and many more. Without trade, many people can not have goods or services that they need or want.
