GATS and i-TIP
This module contains information on Member’s market access commitments and exemptions to the Most favored Nation (MFN) obligation. It also includes the preferential market access commitments for least-developed countries granted by WTO Members under the LDC Services Waiver. The latter feature of I-TIP was developed in cooperation with the International Trade Centre (ITC).
Regional Trade Agreements
The RTA module allows to access and search for information on Members’ commitments in regional trade agreements notified under Article V of the GATS. Currently, the database covers a good proportion of services RTAs.
Services trade Policy Database i-TIP
The Applied Services Trade Policy module provides information jointly compiled by the World Bank and the WTO on services regulatory frameworks. Currently, the database covers 23 service sectors in 68 Members, including Montenegro. The information for 25 of those Members was collected in 2016-2017 through a survey conducted by the World Bank and the WTO. The information for the remaining 43 Members was mainly sourced from the OECD STRI regulatory database, thanks to the co-operation of the OECD, which is gratefully acknowledged. Links to other useful sources of information on applied services policies are also provided (e.g. WTO monitoring reports, WTO trade policy reviews).
Trade in services Statistics
The Services Statistics module accompanies the GATS, RTA and Applied regimes modules by providing relevant trade in services and related statistics.
I-TIP Services is a joint initiative of the World Trade Organization and the World Bank. It is a set of linked databases that provides information on Members’ commitments under the WTO’s General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), services commitments in regional trade agreements (RTA), applied measures in services, and services statistics.
