"Estimating the Impact of Trade Facilitation on Global Trade Flows"
by Mirza, Tasneem

In this paper we study the role of NTBs on trade flows in South Asia by using a modified global gravity model. We extend the existing literature in several ways: (i) we use improved (high quality) data for bilateral trade flows, tariffs, trade facilitation and other NTB’s; (ii) investigation of the effects of trade facilitation across sectors, with special emphasis on the textile, and automobile and parts, sectors; (iii) incorporation of the estimates into a GTAP-based CGE model to simulate the effects of reducing NTBs on employment by gender, factor earnings across sectors, poverty and income distribution in Bangladesh; (iv) incorporation of robustness checks such as accounting for reverse causality and spurious correlation and also usage of alternative econometric estimation techniques.
