Hide / Show Abstract

This paper describes the sources and methods used to construct the trade matrices of the OECD trade system. It also provides an overview of the trade relationships between countries, especially individual OECD countries and the main non-OECD economies, as well as their evolution between 2000 and 2005. It finally serves more broadly as a “ready reckoner” guide to the sensitivity to shocks that are transmitted through trade.
