Trade costs and inclusive growth looks at how implementation of the WTO’s Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) can help to reduce trade costs and promote growth. The publication brings together contributions from ten participants in the WTO Chairs Programme, which supports trade-related activities by academic institutions in developing countries. The book looks into how the Aid for Trade initiative can assist with implementing the TFA, the importance of mainstreaming trade into national development strategies, and the potential impact of the TFA in various regions.

Print copies may be purchased for CHF 50.-

An Advanced Guide to Trade Policy Analysis: The Structural Gravity Model, co-published by the World Trade Organization and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, provides the most recent tools for analysis of trade policy analysis using structural gravity models. Written by experts who have contributed to the development of theoretical and empirical methods in the academic gravity literature and who have rich practical experience in the field, this publication explains how to conduct partial equilibrium estimations as well as general equilibrium analysis with structural gravity models and contains practical guidance on how to apply these tools to concrete policy questions.

This Advanced Guide has been developed to contribute to the enhancement of developing countries’ capacity to analyse and implement trade policy. It is aimed at government experts engaged in trade negotiations, as well as graduate students and researchers involved in trade-related study or research.

Book Launch
Regional Trade Agreements and the Multilateral Trading System

Thursday, 29 September 2016
#WTO Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland
Centre William Rappard, Room W

Programme
Moderator: Rohini Acharya, Editor

14.30 – 14.40 Opening remarks and launch of the book
Roberto Azevêdo, WTO Director-General

14.40 – 14.50 Presentation of the book
Rohini Acharya, Editor and Chief of Section, Regional Trade Agreements, in the Trade Policies Review Division

14.50 – 15.15 Panel discussion

The book contains a collection of studies examining trade-related issues negotiated in regional trade agreements (RTAs) and how RTAs are related to the WTO’s rules. While previous work has focused on subsets of RTAs, these studies are based on what is probably the largest dataset used to date, and highlight key issues that have been negotiated in all RTAs notified to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). New rules within RTAs are compared to rules agreed upon by WTO members. The extent of their divergences and the potential implications for parties to RTAs, as well as for WTO members that are not parties to RTAs, are examined. This volume makes an important contribution to the current debate on the role of the WTO in regulating international trade and how WTO rules relate to new rules being developed by RTAs.

The book launch will take place during the WTO Public Forum 2016 held from 27-29 September 2016.

Participants are invited to register online at www.wto.org/PF16.

Twenty-first century Africa is in a process of economic transformation, but challenges remain in areas such as structural reform, governance, commodity pricing and geopolitics. This book looks into key questions facing the continent, such as how Africa can achieve deeper integration into the rules-based multilateral trading system and the global economy. It provides a range of perspectives on the future of the multilateral trading system and Africa’s participation in global trade. It also underlines the supportive roles that can be played by multilateral and regional institutions during such a rapid and uncertain transition.

This volume is based on contributions to the Fourth China Round Table on WTO Accessions and the Multilateral Trading System, which took place just before the WTO's Tenth Ministerial Conference in Nairobi in December 2015.
