Market and Trade Information > United Kingdom

Trade Transparency Project 

This aims to make trade data more accessible so that consumers in developing countries can see how tariffs and other trade barriers impact on the price of the goods that they buy. A series of hack days held in London, Lagos and Cape Town generated mobile phone applications and online tools that make this information clearer and easier to understand. The resulting increase in transparency and citizen engagement should generate real public debate on free trade and help to make the case for open markets.
