New from OECD: Trad Facilitation and the Global Economy

“In a globalised world, where goods cross borders many times as intermediate and as final products, trade facilitation is essential to lowering overall trade costs and increasing economic welfare, in particular for developing and emerging economies.”

OECD has launched a new book on trade facilitation reform around the world, reflecting global interest and ongoing efforts to implement the Trade Facilitation Agreement.

With the launch of the book, which is available for online consultation and download here, OECD has also prepared a short policy summary document and a video about trade facilitation and OECD tools to evaluate a country’s progress and performance.

New Platform for Analyzing Global Trade in the Last Two Centuries

The Federico-Tena World Trade Historical Database has launched, collecting information about imports and exports from 140 countries between 1800 and 1938.  This database adds something unique to the wealth of resources on global trade, as it includes systematically and methodically collected statistics from developing countries and examines globalization from a historical perspective.
