Members have updated their responses to the 2007 Survey on the environment and officially supported export credits - Part 01.
The dramatic collapse in world trade in 2009 is, this report shows, mainly due to: the drop in demand for highly traded products; the drying up of trade finance; and the vertically integrated nature of global supply chains. Contrary to expectations, protectionist measures were relatively muted and did not play a significant part. In fact, because of their sheer size, stimulus measures may have had more impact on trade than direct trade policy measures Nevertheless, dollar for dollar, direct trade restricting measures have the most strongly negative impacts on growth and employment: a one dollar increase in tariff revenues results in a USD 2.16 drop in world exports and a USD 0.73 drop in world income.
The analyses presented here suggest that exit strategies from measures to deal with the crisis will be most effective in boosting growth and jobs if they first roll back measures that discriminate between domestic and foreign firms and those that target specific sectors. General demand stimulus measures and active labour market policies are preferable under current conditions.
Private financial sector investment in agriculture has increased, mainly because of current prospects for income generation, capital appreciation, and uncorrelated returns with equity markets and as a hedge against inflation. This paper surveys this investment activity and its impacts.

Un grand nombre de pays en développement, en particulier parmi les pays les moins avancés, se trouvent confrontés à des contraintes du côté de l’offre qui obèrent leur capacité de tirer bénéfice des échanges commerciaux internationaux. L’aide pour le commerce renvoie à un compartiment de l’aide au développement qui a vocation à aider les pays en développement à supprimer les goulots d’étranglement dont ils pâtissent du côté de l’offre
Export restrictions on raw materials, including commodities like metals and minerals, are not always effective in meeting policy objectives and should be subject to greater transparency, says this OECD study of recent trends in these measures.
Aid for trade increases exports, creates jobs, boosts long-term economic growth and reduces poverty. Aid for trade increased 60% of the past 7 years, to USD 40 billion in 2009. The share to Africa and the Americas is growing fast, but dropping to Asia, Europe and Oceania.
