Data Analytics for Trade Facilitation

Supporting export decision-making with applied analysis

Trading across borders is vital for many companies to survive and grow. In recent decades globalization, though greater connectivity between nations, improved logistical and supply chain tools and techniques, reduced transport costs, and trade liberalization, have created huge opportunities for export-lead growth.

Identifying however which goods and services can find viable markets in a foreign country is however a daunting challenge facing all companies - especially small and medium firms. And government export promotion agencies are likewise often overwhelmed by the challenges in trading across borders.

In recent years a huge amount of data on trade has become available. This valuable source of information can, if properly analyzed, provide valuable information on business opportunities for exporting.

Therefore, the purpose of this course is to train participants to identify and use this “big data” on trade, to evaluate the potential export opportunities between countries.
