Timely high-frequency indicators for global and regional trade TRADE Closed!

Objectives

The European Commission is launching a call for proposals (ref. ECFIN/A/2008/002) for the construction and monthly production of timely indicators of global and regional trade developments. The global indicators are constructed bottom-up from regional indicators. The regional level includes all EU Member States, as well as the Candidate Countries.

The purpose is to construct a fairly homogenous and exhaustive set of regional trade variables, that together cover the whole world. The set needs to be available at short notice, in order to signal to European policy makers possible changes in the strength of the external environment or possible competitiveness problems of specific Member States. The set of variables are not statistics in a strict sense, as many missing data will need to be estimated.
