CEPII Country Profiles: indicators, databases and classifications

The CEPII Country Profiles put forward an original tool to analyze the insertion of eighty countries in international trade using databases developed by the CEPII. Thus, CHELEM which provides long period trade data since the 1960s in goods and services, GDP and population; MAcMap which estimates the average country’s protection by partners and products; BACI which offers harmonized statistics on values and quantities at a very detailed level of products; and World Trade Flows Characterization (WTFC) which defines type and price range of trade flows, are used to present a consistent set of indicators. Tables and figures are grouped under seven thematic sections: broad patterns; tariff protection; products and partners; comparative advantages; one-way and two-way trade; unit value ranges; and terms of trade. This document specifies the indicators, databases and classifications used in the CEPII Country Profiles.

The cost of sanctions against Russia for the EU countries

The impact of the conflict on Western exports to Russia is strong. From December ’13 to June ’15, the total export loss is 60:2 billion USD. The major part of this loss (82.2%) is accounted for by the products that are not targeted by the Russian counter-sanctions. The EU countries bear 76.7% of all trade loss. Matthieu Crozet and Julian Hinz also exploit French firm-level export data to study how firms reacted to the sanctions. Econometric results show that the military conflict in Ukraine and the sanctions reduced severely both firm export participation and the value exported. Further analyses suggest that the disruption of the provision of trade finance services have played an important role in the decline in exports.
