Primary Contact: 

A joint effort of the International Trade Center (ITC), a cooperation agency of United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and World Trade Organization (WTO), Geneva) and Centre d'Etudes Prospectives et d'Informations Internationales (CEPII, Paris), led to the development of the first version of a Market Access Maps database (MAcMapHS6-v1) (Bouët et al, 2008), the purpose of which was mainly to provide protection figures for the 6th release of the GTAP database (Bouët et al, 2005). An updated version of this database (MAcMapHS6-v2) relying on 2004 data has been developed with improved methodology and data quality. The new database provides evidence on the world applied protection in 2004. MAcMapHS6-v2 is also the source of protection data for both the GTAP7 database and the TASTE software.
