Network of World Merchandise Trade
Grasping the dynamics of world trade from tabular data is difficult. When around $18 trillion worth of merchandise is moving between economies in a single year, it can all get just a bit too confusing. With the aim of clarifying the strength of trade links between the major world regions, and the changing relationships over time, the Locus Insight team has built an innovative viewer for global merchandise trading relationships. The dynamic chart shows the value of goods traded between the major world regions for the three years 2008 to 2010.
