WORLD TRADE STATISTICAL REVIEW – 21 JULYBrussels Daily
The WTO launched a new annual statistical publication — the “World Trade Statistical Review” — on 21 July. This new publication provides insights into how world trade has evolved in recent years by analysing the latest trade statistics within an economic context.
The publication opens with an overview of world trade developments in 2015 and an assessment of the trade outlook in early 2016. This is followed by an in-depth analysis of the latest trends in the global trade of goods and commercial services.
The publication contains an in-depth look at the participation of developing economies in world trade, analysing in particular the role of least-developed countries. It also provides a summary of the main developments in trade-policy making, highlighting the latest data on WTO members’ use of trade-restrictive and trade-facilitating measures. These analytical chapters are complemented by over 50 tables providing comprehensive data on various facets of world trade in goods and services.
