International Trade Statistics 2005

The World Trade Organization (WTO) has published a big report on 2004 and 2005 International trade Statistics. It covers traditional trade statistics, not e-commerce. However, where can a line be drawn? How much of that trade was produced as a result of emails? How much information from Internet web sites was instrumental and helpful to closing a negotiation? The more we think about it the more we can see that the Internet is the greatest business tool of all times. Visit the WTO page and download a copy of the report (274 page pdf document).
