Key Issues

UNCTAD NTM database improves transparency and analysis of the usage of these policy instruments.
Ad-Valorem equivalents provide a cost estimate of NTMs.
Based on data for 109 countries, covering 90% of global trade.
 

The document explores the TRAINS NTM database to answer questions related to NTM usage and its impact on the economy:

  • Which country groups regulate larger share of products and import value? 
  • Which products groups are more regulated?
  • Which type of NTM is most used?
  • What is the cost of technical and non-technical NTMs measured as Ad-Valorem equivalent?
  • Which countries bear the highest cost for export?

This work is the result of the UNCTAD - World Bank "Top-25 Markets" project financially supported by Japan. UNCTAD and the World Bank gratefully acknowledge this support. The contributions of other partners and donors of UNCTAD's NTMs Programme are also gratefully acknowledged.
