International Trade Centre UNCTAD/WTO (ITC)

This organization, jointly operated by the UN and WTO, deals with international trade (particularly with developing and transitional countries). Besides detailed information on their mission and programs, they offer considerable data on-line (and even more is available on their CD-ROM products). Their COMTRADE database contains detailed import and export statistics from 1962 for more than 100 countries. This data is available on a CD-ROM product. In addition, a subset of this data is available on-line. It identifies the largest and most dynamic import and export countries and highlights the most important import/export products (three-digit level) of the Standard International Trade Classification Revision 3.
