About the product
This Handbook provides a comprehensive collection of statistical data relevant to the analysis of world trade, investment and development. The data is presented in an analytical way, through the use of rank-orderings, growth rates, shares and other special calculations in order to facilitate their interpretation. Additionally, the time series of basic trade data cover periods that the United Nations Conference for Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Secretariat considers relevant to statistical and other applicable analysis. Efforts have been made to take account of all available information in order to provide as complete coverage as possible for individual countries. Government officials, university research specialists and others interested in this subject will find the Handbook to be a useful source of international statistical trade data. This bilingual Handbook contains information in French and English.
