Welcome to the Database on Preferential Trade Arrangements
This database contains information on the preferential trade arrangements (PTAs) that are being implemented by WTO Members. The database was established as an outcome of the decision establishing the Transparency Mechanism for PTAs. In the context of this decision, PTAs are understood to mean non-reciprocal preferential schemes. They are distinct from regional trade agreements (RTAs), which are covered by the Transparency Mechanism for RTAs.
