Abstract

Public procurement is becoming increasingly important in trade negotiations as evidenced in the current paper. However, at the same time public procurement is an area marked by increasing number of protectionist barriers around the world. Against this background, the author provides most recent estimates of the size of international procurement markets and analyses the number and type of barriers affecting such markets. Furthermore, the paper discusses the importance of creating a global public procurement database and sketches some essential features such a database should exhibit.
