International Trade Statistics 2009 includes the details of merchandise
trade by product and trade in commercial services by category. Each chapter
is introduced by a highlights section that identifies the most salient
trends in the data, including the first quarter of 2009, and illustrates
them with numerous charts and maps. There is also a methodological chapter
(Chapter IV Metadata) that explains essential concepts and definitions used
in compiling the statistics, and an appendix with detailed data on trade by
region up to 2008.
All data used in the publication, as well as
additional charts not included in the book, can be downloaded from the WTO
web site at
stat.wto.org. With these additions, International Trade
Statistics 2009 serves as an invaluable reference for researchers, policy
makers and anyone interested in international trade.
