New UN Trade Data Extraction interface for Comtrade

The UN has launched a new Trade Data Extraction interface for Comtrade, providing international merchandise trade statistics for 140 countries from 1962 to present. Users are invited to test the new resource and send feedback (via the link at the top of the beta page). Note that the test platform has a download limit of 50,000 observations. EUI members have full access to the current UN Comtrade subscription (no download limit) via the Library’s Comtrade resource page. In late June, Comtrade is scheduled to add an application programming interface (API) for ease of download, collation and integration of data.
