In the context of modern internal system, the history of relations between countries was basically based on the dependence of countries on the agriculture as a tool of wealth creation. The countries therefore depended on each other for production of specific agricultural commodities in order to sustain their economic activities. In the end of eighteenth century, certain distinct prominent features of modern international system were clearly elaborated with help of alternate groups of peace among people. Over the years war has been prevalent all through making it a prominent feature of the modern international system. The characteristics of this system have therefore become increasingly prominent due to its aging. Initially modern internal system was introduced when the agriculture was mainly the source of wealth to all the countries. Wealth creation was mainly based on agriculture. Agriculture was therefore the main source of raw materials for production of the most goods and services to the most of the population. The territorial treaties between countries were very essential in order to exchange the agricultural commodities enabling proper exchange of goods so as to maintain sustainability of the countries. During this time, the flow of agricultural commodities was essential in order to facilitate proper trade relationships between countries since one country could not produce everything sufficient for its consumption. There was therefore a need to maintain the peaceful coexistence between the countries in order to facilitate commercial transactions between the countries.
In the context of diminishing economic value, the way in states interact are greatly affected leading to low interactions between the states. The economic conditions among countries are of essence in evaluating the manner in which countries relate in conducting their daily business activities across the borders. The levels of economic performance of the specific countries involve the way in which they interact in conducting business across borders. The countries still needs interaction for the essence of the trading the industrial products between the countries. The levels of technological advancement are different in different countries therefore interactions are of essence in transfer of innovations and technology across countries. The transfer of technological advancements and innovations are important in ensuring that the useful technology is properly utilized across borders in boosting the market operations and production technology between countries. The interaction is therefore of significance in boosting of the production technology among the countries in order to better their products and services.
The changes in economic conditions globally have greatly influenced the way in which countries interact to conduct their business activities in relation to rules and regulations governing the transactions across borders. The levels of interaction have therefore been influenced by the shift from agricultural based production to industrial economy. The change has led to less dependence on social interactions between countries leading to a shift from communism to the capitalist form of interactions. The countries now tends to concentrate more on their private production activities thereby less dependence on other countries in sustaining their economies in relation to the production activities. The interaction between the states have therefore greatly decrease leading to high chances of conflict of interest between the countries. Wealth creation is now mainly based on industrial technology in sustaining the economy of a country. The sources of wealth have therefore diversified leading less interaction between the countries.
