Which political events of the 1980s had the most influence on the collapse of Communism in Europe and the end of the Cold War?
In November of 1989 what event symbolized the end of the old Soviet-dominated order in Eastern Europe?
The Berlin Wall fell but also many other countries in Eastern Europe began to reject Communism. Also Argentina held their first free elections in 30 years after the dirty war. Unfortunately a couple of months later the cicil war started again. Many things happened in November 1989 but the fall of the Berlin Wall was the most significant as it symbolized the end of communism in East Germany. THE BERLIN WALL FELL

What event contributed the most to increasing international trade for eastern and western Europe in the 1990s?
The division of Eastern and Western Europe has not disappeared and is still present for geographical and political reasons. I assume you're referring to the Iron Curtain, which divided the democratic Western Europe from the communist Eastern Europe. This dissolved in the late 1980s/early 1990s, during the fall of communism. However, the Iron Curtain borders are still typically used to differentiate between Eastern and Western Europe.
