"Import Penetration in Public Procurement: Lessons from Current Data Reporting Efforts"
by Hoekman, Bernard

This paper will discuss the WTO Government Procurement Agreement and preferential trade agreements covering procurement; review the literature on the impact of international procurement disciplines; survey data reporting requirements and available data sources on procurement and explore what indicators could be used with extant data to assess the degree to which public purchasing is “open” to foreign firms. The aim is not so much to undertake a detailed analysis of procurement patterns by countries reporting data, but to assess what can be learned from past and current data reporting and collection efforts for a broader, international effort to assess the magnitude of cross-border procurement and the extent of discrimination in public purchasing.
