Who Uses the EU’s Free Trade Agreements?
The National Board of Trade Sweden will present the main findings of the recently published report “Who Uses the EU’s Free Trade Agreements?”. The report is based on transaction-level data on the use of the EU’s free trade agreement with South Korea by Swedish importers during a sample period. The report investigates how the use of the free trade agreement varies with respect to the company size, product category, customs procedures and import transaction value. In addition, a novel feature of this report is that it presents an econometric analysis of the influence of transaction-specific characteristics, such as the import transaction value, the size of the preference margin and the potential duty savings, in order to use the free trade agreement.
