Interactive Graphic System of International Trade Data (SIGCI)
This service aims to disseminate information on the evolution of Latin American trade relations with the world in terms of composition and trade direction.
It is important and relevant because it allows governments, researchers, students and other civil society groups to understand the past evolution and current situation of the trade relations of Latin American and Caribbean countries, thus enabling the design of better trade strategies.
The service assists in the design of trade strategies and in the focalization of instruments related to trade promotion by the countries of the region, and facilitates the diversification of products and of partners for the region’s exports. It provides information to SMEs, governments, NGOs, students and other civil society institutions.
The service is provided through an online database, annually updated with statistical data based on raw statistics from the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) Comtrade database.
