Implications for trade statistics and the WPTGS
Improving and extending trade statistics Improving trade statistics: trade in volume and prices, trade in services, higher frequency trade data. Trade in the context of globalisation: globalisation changes the economic role of trade and the significance of trade statistics => global value chains, trade in value added. Trade at the microeconomic level => Use microdata: ORBIS, TEC; matching trade data with business registers and other enterprise-level databases allows to understand the determinants and impact of trade (e.g. job creation).
All these issues are on the agenda of this meeting! STD, together with other directorates of OECD are engaged in all these directions of work. In view of the challenges ahead, there is a need for co-operation with other international organisations and national data providers.
