Digital Trade Estimates Project

DTE Database

The Digital Trade Estimates (DTE) database is a ​comprehensive database entirely dedicated to digital trade policy.​ It includes measures covering 64 economies worldwide, which are classified into several areas of analysis and four broad clusters:

  1. Fiscal restrictions: T​ariffs and trade defence, taxation and subsidies, public procurement;
  2. Establishment restrictions: F​oreign investment, IPR, competition policy, business mobility;
  3. Restrictions on data: D​ata policies, intermediary liability, content access;
  4. Trading restrictions: Q​uantitative trade restrictions; standards; online sales and transactions.

DTRI Index

The Digital Trade Restrictiveness Index (DTRI) is based on the information available in the DTE database. Each country is assigned a score from zero (fully open) to 1 (virtually closed) based on the trade restrictiveness of its digital trade policies. The index allows to easily visualise the overall digital trade environment in the countries as well as how countries rank in each of the policy areas covered.
