Trade monitoring reports

Trade monitoring reports showed that WTO members continued to introduce trade-restrictive measures in 2015 at the same pace as the year before. Given the continuing uncertainties in the global economy, the reports stressed the need for members to show restraint in imposing new trade restrictions and to eliminate more of the existing measures in order to reduce the accumulated stockpile of restrictions. The reports also call for more transparency in the area of non-tariff measures.
