Abstract

For governments, the advantage of non-tariff barriers (NTBs) to trade is that their effects are more certain than for tariffs. Now that tariff barriers have been substantially reduced, there has been increasing interest in the ways that non-tariff barriers (NTBs) may distort and restrict international trade. This working paper assesses currently available methods for quantifying NTBs. Calculation of the tariff equivalent of a given NTB for a given economic indicator is complex, and requires a great deal of information. Measures that are equivalent for one indicator will not be so for others, and there is no substitute for NTB-specific expertise ... Barrières non tarifaires L’avantage, pour les gouvernements, des barrières non tarifaires au commerce (BNT), est que leurs effets sont plus certains que ceux des droits de douane. Les manières dont les BNT peuvent entraîner un effet de distorsion et de restriction du commerce international suscitent un intérêt croissant depuis la réduction substantielle des barrières tarifaires. Ce document de travail analyse les méthodes actuellement disponibles qui permettent d’évaluer quantitativement les BNT. Le calcul du droit de douane équivalent à une BNT donnée, pour un indicateur économique donné, est complexe et nécessite un grand nombre d’information. Des mesures équivalentes pour un indicateur ne le seront pas pour d’autres, et rien ne peut remplacer les connaissances techniques d’un type spécifique de BNT ...
