The CEPII Country Profiles have been updated

The interactive pages Country Profiles based on the CEPII data have just been updated. Open and free of charge, they characterise the international integration of 80 countries in the form of didactic illustrations over seven sections: broad patterns, projections, balance & forex, tariff protection, comparative advantages, types & ranges, products & partners. Thus, the example of comparative advantages over major sectors illustrates the strong commitment of Germany in manufacturing, and of the United Kingdom in services, while the strengths and weaknesses of France are not so acute. These three national patterns reveal one of the major challenges of Brexit for the European Union which is consolidating its comparative advantages in high value-added trade services. The data for the specialisation of the European continent as a whole, as well as that of the EU (with and without the United Kingdom) are now available, among many other indicators in Region Profiles, the new CEPII’s visual data set.

The CEPII Region Profiles, new ready-to-use illustrations

As an extension of the Country Profiles, the CEPII has designed the Region Profiles, interactive pages based on its statistical databases. A synthetic analysis tool for globalisation, these visual data allow to characterise the international integration of the 8 major regions making up the world, as well as that of 10 integrated economic areas. The integration patterns can be compared from one region to another, in particular by distinguishing internal exchanges from those carried out with the rest of the world. The data are provided in the form of didactic illustrations over seven categories: broad patterns, projections, balance & forex, tariff protection, comparative advantages, types & ranges, products & partners. The Region Profiles are provided for informational, educational and research purposes, and are freely and publicly available.
