Featured Online Resource - World Trade Organization (WTO) Statistics Database

This week’s Featured Online Resource is The World Trade Organization (WTO) Statistics Database ( This online database from the WTO provides statistical information on the trade profiles of various countries.  This data includes where the country ranks in world trade, when they became a member of the WTO, and the types of commodities that the country exports/imports.  Additionally, the database provides information on the service profiles of the various members of the WTO.  This data includes infrastructure information, including transportation, telecommunications, and financial information.  

An example of a service profile for Belgium is included below.
Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
