Story
Tagline
Statistics is an inherent part of UNCTAD.
Introduction
Being the United Nations’ focal point for the integrated treatment of trade and development and the interrelated issues in the areas of finance, technology, investment and sustainable development, UNCTAD compiles, validates and processes a wide range of data collected from national and international sources.
Most of the time series cover long periods, with some dating back to 1948, for almost all economies of the world.
