Methods changed – Information changed

The joint OECD – WTO Trade in Value-Added Initiative breaks with conventional measurements of  trade, which record gross flows of goods and services each time they cross borders. It seeks instead to analyse the value added by a country in the production of any good or service that is then exported, and offers a fuller picture of commercial relations between nations.

The new methodology and its results are visually explained. Video and an interactive presentation give beautifully made insights.
