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
