Trade Organisations trade statistics
The WTO provides a wide range
of trade statistics on most countries of the world. This
link takes you to the start page where you will need to
select the country(ies) that you wish to obtain trade statistics
on. It is definitely a good site to visit.
Trade Map is an online trade
statistics resource - perhaps the most comprehensive available,
as the site enables you to research the trade partterns
of single countries, as well as between countries and regions
in some depth. This site requires registration, however,
and the site is not easy to use and will take some effort
to learn to navigate and to use on your part. Nevertheless,
the statistics available from this site are without equal.
InfoNation is a UN website aimed
at the learning community, but that provides a very useful
facility whereby you can access a range of statistics about
different countries and regions. It is also possible to
compare the statistics from five different countries, which
is a useful feature. It is not the easiest site to navigate,
however, and you will need to spend a little time on the
site in order to become familiar with it.
Bank - World Development indicators
The site links to a database
of a wide range of development indicators, from GDP to
energy figures. You need to select the country and indicators
you are interested in, but it is an excellent source of
up-to-date information. This is worth a look.
Monetary Fund - World Economic Outlook database
The site links to the World
Economic Outlook database, a comprehensive database covering
a wide range of economic and development data. The site
requires you to select the country you want to investigate
as well as the data that you want to view and when you
are finished, it provides you with a printable report covering
all the information you have selected. It is also possible
to compare countries. Although the site requires some effort,
it is an invaluable source of information.
