About the product
This issue presents data and statistical indicators on external trade in goods of ESCWA member countries. Data are presented in time series until 2009 and were drawn primarily from national sources, as well as from secondary sources where appropriate. This issue of the Bulletin, which provides total and detailed data on intraregional and international trade of member countries, will be useful to policy makers, analysts, researchers and other users. This issue has three parts. Part I is on external trade statistics and contains tables on the annual trade growth rates in the region, the total values of imports and exports and the percentage of those values by sections of the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS). Part II is on intraregional trade and contains tables on intraregional imports and exports as a share of total imports and exports by country and HS sections. Part III contains tables on imports and exports of each member country.
