Interactive Tool Provides Trade, Tariff Information

New World Trade Organization web tool compiles data in map form

The WTO released this month a new interactive tool focuses on International Trade and Market Access, providing a new presentation for all WTO data on merchandise and commercial services trade as well as selected market access indicators from World Tariff Profiles.

The tool consists of four elements: a trade dashboard, a trends dashboard, a tariff dashboard and a "Made in the World" section.

The Trade Dashboard reveals the leading traders by commodity group, sector and year. Data can be shown by country, by region or by economic grouping.  The dashboard also shows the leading partners of selected countries.

The Trends Dashboard shows the evolution of trade between the selected country/region/economic grouping and a particular partner.

The Tariffs Dashboard displays statistics on market access for goods by country or customs territory, using data from the latest edition of the World Tariff Profiles.

Made in the World provides information on the WTO's participation in projects aimed at measuring and analyzing trade in terms of value added.

The data is presented in the form of interactive maps, charts and data tables, using arrows and pop-up boxes to depict trade flows and to provide supplementary information.

WTO-related information for the countries, such as accession and membership status, is also included. A search function is provided in the data table of the trade dashboard to allow users to search by specific countries.

Users are also able to export the data underlying the graphics. The information builds on data released in October.
