This webinar series on the economics of deep trade agreements brought together leading trade experts to present ongoing research on the determinants and consequences of regional trade agreements. The research program draws on the World Bank`s new data and analysis on trade agreements and is jointly organized by the Development Research Group and the Global Practice of Macroeconomics, Trade and Investment. It aims to improve our understanding of key issues of trade agreements and regional integration.
While multilateral trade negotiations have stagnated and tensions between major players have risen, bilateral and regional agreements appear to have run away with the trade agenda. Today, there are more than 300 agreements, compared to 50 in 1990. More importantly, many of these agreements have expanded their scope far beyond tariffs and aim to achieve integration beyond trade or “deep” integration. A new e-book from the World Bank and CEPR focuses on the determinants of deep trade agreements, their impact on trade and non-trade outcomes, and how they could shape trade relations in a post-COVID-19 world. 12. The ripple effect of deep trade agreements on Chinese state-owned enterprisesKevin Lefebvre, Nadia Rocha and Michele Ruta Preferential trade agreements have always been a feature of the global trading system, but have gained in importance in recent years. The number of TPAs increased from 50 in the early 1990s to about 300 in 2019. All WTO Members currently participate in at least one and often several APAs. APTs have broadened their scope. While the average PTA covered 8 policy areas in the 1950s, it averaged 17 in recent years.

13. How Preferential Trade Agreements with Strong Intellectual Property Provisions Affect TradeKeith E. Maskus and William Ridley Fernandes, A M, K Lefebvre and N Rocha (2021), “Heterogeneous impacts of SPS and TBT regulations: firm-level evidence from deep trade agreements,” World Bank Policy Research Working Paper 9700. This dataset reflects the coverage of 52 selected policy areas in 279 EPAs notified to the WTO between 1958 and 2015. It also contains information on the legal applicability of each policy area. This dataset captures the broad scope of the content of deep trade agreements. Deep trade agreements are important for economic development. The rules embedded in DTAs, as well as multilateral trade rules and other elements of international economic law such as bilateral investment treaties, influence how countries (and thus the people and companies who live and operate there) act, invest, work and, ultimately, develop. Trade and investment regimes determine the level of economic integration, competition rules influence economic efficiency, intellectual property rights are important for innovation, and environmental and labour regulations contribute to environmental and social outcomes. This database provides the tools to analyse these new dimensions of integration in order to better identify the content and consequences of DTAs.

Global Value Chains and Deep IntegrationLeonardo Baccini, Matteo Fiorini, Bernard Hoekman, Carlo Altomonte and Italo Colantone This CEPR World Bank e-book brings together leading international trade experts from academia and political institutions, providing new analysis on the determinants of deep trade agreements, their impact on trade and non-trade outcomes, and how they could shape trade relations in a post-COVID-19 world.

Deep integration into trade agreements: working clauses, tariffs and trade flowsRaymond Robertson Abman, R, C Lundberg and M Ruta (2021), “The effectiveness of environmental provisions in regional trade agreements,” World Bank Policy Research Working Paper 9601. This database contains detailed information on the content of a subsample of eighteen of the most frequently addressed policy areas in a series of 283 agreements currently notified to the WTO between 1958 and 2017. For each agreement, the database covers the stated objectives and substantive obligations, as well as aspects related to transparency, procedures and enforcement. This database represents the most comprehensive effort in terms of coverage of policy areas and the granularity of information in each area. This database is the result of cooperation with scientific experts and other international organizations such as ITC, OECD, UNCTAD and WTO.
10. Defining the scope of trade agreements on trade in services: what really mattersIngo Borchert and Mattia Di Ubaldo 16. Why deep trade agreements can shape trade after COVID-19Aaditya Mattoo, Nadia Rocha and Michele Ruta To assess the content of deep trade agreements, the following datasets have been created: Deep trade agreements are mutual agreements between countries that cover not only trade, but also additional policy areas such as international investment and labour flows, and the protection of intellectual property rights and the environment. Although these agreements are still called trade agreements, their goal is integration beyond trade or deep integration.
