About the book
World Tariff Profiles is a co-publication of the WTO, ITC and UNCTAD covering market access for goods. This publication contains a comprehensive compilation of the tariffs imposed by each of the 161 WTO. Each country profile presents information on tariffs imposed by its economy on imports complemented with an analysis of the market access conditions it faces in its major export markets. Statistics for all countries are given in standardized tables which allow easy comparisons between countries, between sectors and, specifically for WTO members, between bound and applied tariffs as well. The calculations are based on national tariff schedules and imports in conformity with a standard Harmonized System (HS) nomenclature version. To the extent possible, ad valorem equivalents (AVEs) of non-ad valorem tariffs are estimated and are included in the estimation of tariff indicators.
