Developing countries and advanced economies differ greatly in their level of "skepticism" towards international trade and foreign investment, a study of people across 44 countries revealed.
A median of 81 percent of those surveyed believed that international trade and global business ties were good things, according to a study by the US-based Pew Research Center.
However, views on trade, jobs and wages varied greatly between nations, with people from advanced economies, in particular France, Italy, Japan and the United States, having a high degree of skepticism.
"That undercurrent of skepticism could complicate current government efforts to further deepen and broaden global markets," the survey said, with particular emphasis on US and EU trade agreements being negotiated.
While a median of 66 percent of people in developing economies believe trade increases jobs, only 20 percent of Americans agree, making them the least likely group to concur.
Tunisians, Ugandans and Vietnamese, on the other hand, responded the most enthusiastically.
And while 45 percent of the entire global sample believed that foreign-led mergers and acquisitions were a good thing, only 31 percent of advanced-economy respondents and 28 percent of Americans agreed.
A median of 87 percent of people in developing countries believed that trade was good, while 84 percent of people in advanced economies held the same opinion.
A median of 78 percent of those in emerging markets meanwhile see trade as beneficial, while 52 percent say that trade creates jobs.
"Such emerging market sentiment may reflect the experience in China and elsewhere, where growing international business ties have been associated with more employment opportunities and higher incomes," Pew said.
A total of 48,643 people were interviewed in the survey conducted from March 17 to June 5.
