Question: Where can I find tariff and trade information?

Answer


Trade Barriers are government-induced restrictions on international trade and can take many forms.  Common barriers to trade are tariffs, quotas, and non-tariff barriers.   Tariffs are customs duties imposed on imported goods. 

Go to the Virtual Business Library's Country Information section for links to useful resources including links to the following suggested resources. 

BMI Research: Provides financial and company data.  Covers 175 countries. Go to either the Hot Topics tab or the Service tab and select External Trade and refine by the Geography tab choices. 

EIU Country Commerce Global: Go to a selected country and search for the tariff and non-tariff barrier section. 

You may want to consult the NYU guide to WTO/GATT Research which provides additional research guide links as well as links for U.S. regulations and tariff schedules. 

You may also want to consult the following:

Office of the United States Trade Representative, USTR.gov.

Export.gov; for Foreign Trade Barriers information by country and region with links to other sites.

World Trade Organization, World Tariff Profiles.

United States International Trade Commission: Go to Interactive Tariff and Trade Dataweb - USITC
