Full question wording: What do you think about the growing trade and business ties between (survey country) and other countries - do you think it is a very good thing, somewhat good, somewhat bad or a very bad thing for our country?

Notes: Good thing combines "very good thing" and "somewhat good thing" responses. Bad Thing combines "somewhat bad thing" and "very bad thing."
