Mise à jour de l'ensemble de données sur le contenu des ACPr

Un nouvel ensemble de données sur le contenu des accords commerciaux préférentiels (ACPr) a été publié par l'OMC en avril 2013. À l'origine, cet ensemble de données a été établi aux fins du Rapport sur le commerce mondial 2011. Sa version mise à jour est une classification exhaustive de 100 ACPr signés entre 1958 et 2011.

The dataset is an extension of the data provided in Horn et al. (2010)(1). The agreements covered represent almost 90 per cent of world trade and cover most regions of the world: the United States, the European Union, Africa, the Middle East, Oceania, Asia, and Central and South America. The dataset includes PTAs concluded exclusively between WTO members as well as agreements between WTO members and non-members.

For a detailed explanation of the methodology and limitations of the dataset, see Section D.2 of the 2011 World Trade Report.

The dataset is available in excel and dta formats. For a full description of the variables and data coding, see the “read me” excel sheet.

A comprehensive analysis of the patterns of PTA content can be found in Section D of the World Trade Report 2011.

What is new in the updated dataset?

The updated dataset covers another four PTAs:

  • European Economic Area (entered into force on 1 January 1994)
  • India-Japan PTA (1 August 2011)
  • India-Malaysia PTA (1 July 2011)
  • India- Sri Lanka PTA (15 December 2001)

The coding of some of the provisions in other PTAs in the dataset has been corrected.
