Trade Watch (February 2022) (English)

The key messages of this newsletter include: (i) Merchandise trade strengthened in November 2021 despite persistent value-chain bottlenecks and logistics constraints; (ii) Services trade is finally closing the gap with pre-pandemic levels, a year after merchandise trade; (iii) International travel services are still severely depressed due to the unequal distribution of vaccines, the emergence of new COVID-19 variants, and continuing border restrictions; (iv) In shipping, logistics constraints remain at historical levels; and (v) New evidence of the linkages between shipping reliability and trade in the pandemic period.
