    Productivity and Jobs in a Globalised World - (How) Can All Regions Benefit?

    This report looks at how regional policies can support productivity growth and jobs. While there has been a remarkable decline in inequality in OECD countries, inequality among regions within certain countries has increased over the same time period. Regions that narrowed productivity gaps tended to benefit from economically vibrant tradable sectors and integration with well-functioning cities. This report considers in detail the role of the tradable sector as a driver of productivity growth and its relationship with employment. It addresses the possible risks of a growing tradable sector and how diversification is central to strengthening regional economic resilience. It considers how regions integrate global value chains and highlights the role of regional and policy links in fostering productivity growth and job creation. It asks what policies can help better anticipate or cushion shocks from trade in specific regions and, more generally, what strategies and framework conditions are conducive for regional productivity and employment growth.

    Growth in a Multilateral World: The Role of Inclusive Trade and Quality Investment

    Despite these glimmerings of hope, the multilateral system is under strain and governments around the world are facing a public backlash against globalisation, open markets and trade. This is partly due to a lack of trust in the international system and partly because the benefits of globalisation have not been evenly distributed across all peoples and regions.

Recent work focuses on how governments actually implement these environmental commitments and whether they have had an impact on environmental endpoints and on how to incorporate environmental objectives across these agreements for better policy coherence.

    Statistical Insights: New OECD-WTO data provides coherent and comprehensive view of Global Trade in Services

    Although services account for a growing share of international trade, in-depth (policy) analyses of global trade in services are often hampered by incomplete and asymmetric bilateral statistics. To mitigate these problems, the OECD and WTO, in collaboration with national statistical offices and central banks, have built a coherent and comprehensive global dataset of bilateral trade in services flows.

    Trade in Counterfeit Goods and Free Trade Zones - Evidence from Recent Trends

    This study examines the potential for the misuse of Free Trade Zones (FTZs) for trade in counterfeit and pirated goods. It presents the evolution of the FTZs and the international legal framework in which they operate, the reasons for establishing such zones and the benefits they offer businesses, and, finally, the role these zones play in fuelling trade in counterfeit and pirated goods. It also analyses the links between the FTZs and trade in counterfeit products, and provides data on these links.
