ITA - Trade barriers removed, reduced or prevented (annual)

performance.commerce.gov | Last Updated 15 Jan 2020

This indicator captures the results of ITA’s efforts to facilitate fair competition in international trade for U.S. firms and workers by improving the number of trade barriers reduced, removed, or prevented. The measure tends to fluctuate over time as the outcome (foreign governments agreeing to voluntarily honor trade agreement obligations) is dependent on actions by sovereign nations which are outside of direct U.S. control.
