Mid-Year Report to the WTO Trade Policy Review Body

The Director-General’s mid-year report has been presented to the WTO Trade Policy Review Body (TPRB). Covering the period mid-October 2017 through mid-May 2018, the monitoring report assesses and reviews trade measures and policies put into place in comparison with the previous review period (mid-October 2016 to mid-October 2017).¬† Among the findings, it was observed that, while WTO members continue to implement more trade-facilitating than trade-restricting measures, “WTO members introduced more trade-restrictive measures” than during the previous period.

For the Director-General’s speech, more on the launch of the report, and a link to the report itself, visit the report press release on the WTO website here:¬†https://www.wto.org/english/news_e/news18_e/trdev_25jul18_e.htm

Marked Opening, Growth and Employment: New from OECD

OECD has announced the launch of a new study examining the latest trends in trade.¬† “Efforts to enhance trade integration have recently slowed down, or even reversed. This stagnation is problematic, as OECD’s most recent study demonstrates that trade liberalisation increases trade, GDP, private consumption, wages, and productivity for all members of a regional trade agreement. The more countries participate in an agreement, the larger the benefits.”

Looking at developed and developing countries, OECD’s report provides insight useful to policymakers regarding changes to domestic policies to mitigate negative effects from trade and ensure gains in economic development.

The full study is available to WTO staff and visitors to the WTO Library, through a subscription to the OECD iLibrary: http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/18166873
