WTO issues new edition of World Tariff ProfilesWTO

The WTO issued today (2 July) the latest edition of World Tariff Profiles, an annual publication jointly produced with the International Trade Centre and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. The new edition provides comprehensive information on the tariffs and non-tariff measures imposed by over 170 countries and customs territories, with a special feature on trade and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Tariff data are presented in comparative tables and in one-page profiles for each economy. Statistics on non-tariff measures by country and by product group complement the data on tariffs. A new table containing import and export profiles indicates the value of imports and exports for each country and customs territory and the average tariffs applied to these products.

The special topic of this year's World Tariff Profiles is "Aligning trade and tariff policies with sustainable development". The chapter provides statistics on tariffs applied to technological goods that may assist countries in fulfilling certain Sustainable Development Goals, such as SDG 3.9 ("By 2030, substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution and contamination") and SDG 7.2 ("By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix").  

The publication can be downloaded from the WTO website. Printed copies will be available in the coming weeks. French and Spanish editions will be available for download by the end of July.

The new data are also available in the WTODATA portal.
