Trade in Telecommunication Equipment

Telecommunication trade continues its expansion in the OECD area and among OECD and non-member countries. Telecommunication trade, particularly with non- OECD member countries, is having a substantial impact on trade balances because of increasing imports from those countries. The chapter examines telecommunication trade in the OECD area and its place within the larger category of total information and communication technology equipment. It presents trade balance data from countries in the OECD area as well as key trends and growth patterns. Finally it examines revealed comparative advantages and the breakdown of intra-industry trade.
