Trade in Communication Equipment and Services
This chapter focuses on major trends in communication equipment, ICT goods and communication services trade among OECD countries and the rest of the world. During 2009, the global financial crisis (GFC) significantly disturbed trade worldwide, and while ICT has not escaped its influence, ongoing demand has to some extent softened the blow. Part of this chapter covers recent changes in ICT product definitions, examining the classifications used to measure trade and the techniques used to bridge the different classifications (Box 9.1).
