Funds for: constructing a homogenous and exhaustive set of regional trade variables that together cover the whole world
Main beneficiaries: national statistical institutes; research centres; companies; professional organisations/ associations

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives 
* To construct a homogenous and exhaustive set of regional trade variables that together cover the whole world;
* To construct and monthly product timely indicators of global and regional trade developments

Priorities
* The set needs to be available at short notice, in order to signal to European policy makers possible changes in the strength of the external environment or possible competitiveness problems of specific Member States;
* The set of variables are not statistics in a strict sense, as many missing data will need to be estimated

Among financed actions
*  The results should contain, for the countries and regions detailed below, the following variables:
– Export and imports values (current euro);
– Export and imports prices (euro prices);
– Export and imports volumes (constant euro), including the forward looking indicators;
– An index of industrial production
* When missing, trade values and prices will have to be estimated. Trade volumes have to be calculated on the basis of trade values and prices. On the use of price variables: when available, preference should be given to true price indices instead of unit value indices, which suffer from composition bias. All series have to be seasonally adjusted and, as much as possible, working-day adjusted
