International Trade Centre data
International Trade Centre data on global trade, market access, foreign direct investment and economic standards are collated by the ITC (Geneva) - a joint agency of UNCTAD and the WTO.
EUI members should create an account by following the instructions are below ('How to access data'). ITC databases are accessible under the ITC development research network license. ITC describes the four main online resources as follows:
- Trade Map is an online tool with monthly, quarterly and yearly international trade data combined with statistical indicators and information on trading companies which helps prioritise export and import markets.
- Market Access Map is a tool for analysing market access conditions worldwide, including applied and bound tariff rates, trade agreements (rules of origin and tariff preferences), export-import statistics and non-tariff measures.
- Investment Map provides the sectoral breakdown of foreign direct investment (FDI), trade, market access and foreign affiliates information to support strategies of investment attraction and targeting.
- Standards Map (Chrome browser recommended) for analysing and comparing voluntary standards promoting sustainable development applied to the production and trade of goods and services.
Start dates vary; most series run from 2000 to present.
