Measurement of Trade and Innovation: Issues and Challenges

Source: International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development

From the Introduction:

The objective of this think piece is to focus on the measurement of trade-related aspects of innovation and creativity in the broader context of a rules-based multilateral trading system with the following aims.

1. Taking stock of recent and current developments in international trade indicators and their linkage to innovation;
2. Encouraging international organizations and countries to improve the collection, compilation, and dissemination of data relevant to both trade and innovation; and
3. Finding ways to better inform the negotiating process in the WTO to make the multilateral trading system more conducive to the development of innovation capabilities and results.

The think piece follows the definition of the Oslo Manual 2005, which says, “An innovation is the implementation of a new or significantly improved product (good or service), or process, a new marketing method, or a new organisational method in business practices, workplace organisation or external relations”.
