Measure of preference margins

Céline Carrère proposes a new measure of the preference margins granted by the 27 members of the EU to its commercial partners.

This new measure, an outcome from theorical work, takes into account competition between non-EU commercial partners, but also the competition of these partners with the European producers.

Preference margins are calculated for each partner-country / product pair, from a base of 222 margins for the year 2008. These results are available in the database below, with those of two other more classical measures of these margins.
