Jointly prepared with the International Trade Centre and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the 2022 edition of World Tariff Profiles has been issued by the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
It provides comprehensive information on the tariffs and non-tariff measures (NTMs) imposed by over 170 countries and customs territories.
Summary tables at the start of the publication provide cross-country comparisons of the average “bound” or maximum tariff each economy may apply to imports from other WTO members and the average tariffs it applies in practice.
Data are provided for the category of “all products” as well as for agricultural and non-agricultural products. Import and export profiles provide cross-country comparisons on the value of imports, export diversification and relevant tariff data.
One-page profiles in Part 2 of the report provide more detailed data for each economy, with tariffs broken down by product groups. Each profile also shows the economy’s main trading partners and the tariffs levied on their exports by these markets.
Statistics on non-tariff measures, such as anti-dumping measures, countervailing measures and safeguards, complement the data on tariffs.
The full, 260-page document, which can be found at www.wto.org, also includes two special topics: preferential rules of origin in international trade, and the use of NTMs on “green” and “brown” energy products.
