Vietnam Statistics Added to All ITP World Trade Analyses

After a hiatus of several years, the government of Vietnam has begun publishing monthly trade statistics. These were extensively vetted to remove apparent reporting errors before adding them to ITP’s numerous trade tools. Previously, Vietnam’s trade had been derived from trading partner statistics. This derived trade accounted for about 90% of the actual reported totals for most products, with the difference due mainly to the lack of statistics from non-reporting countries.
