Intraregional trade of ESCWA member countries

This chapter presents analysis and statistics for ESCWA member countries for which data on intraregional trade in non-oil goods were available for 201٤. Available data show no common trend for intraregional exports but rather varying performance between the ESCWA countries ranging from slight increase, stable to decrease. The outcome for the region was a net decline of non-oil intraregional exports by US$ 1 billion compared to their level in 2013. Figures also highlight the increasing importance of the share of intraregional exports in the ESCWA region to total non-oil exports, which rose to 21.9 per cent in 2014 from 20.5 per cent in 2013.
