Table 2 Tariffs by sector: applied and MFN rates (in %, latest available year [t])

Source: CEPII-ITC, MAcMap-HS6 2013 database.


Applied preferential tariff: the lowest rate applicable to a single partner, taking into account the preferential agreements.

MFN tariff: applied tariff under the Most Favoured Nation clause. For a member country of the World Trade Organization (WTO), this is the standard non-discriminatory tariff on imported products from its WTO partners (excluding preferential tariffs under free trade agreements and other arrangements or tariffs applied within the limits of a quota).

The average tariff rate, for both MFN and Applied Preferential, corresponds to weighted averages computed with the MAcMap-HS6 methodology, called the “reference groups” (see Guimbard et alii, 2012, p. 102).

Columns 1 & 2: average tariffs (MFN and preferential) applied by the country to all its partners.

Columns 3 & 4: average tariffs (MFN and preferential) applied by the country to its partners of its own geographic area.

Columns 5 & 6: world average tariff (MFN and preferential).

The sectors come from the CEPII’s CHELEM classification of products.

MAcMap-HS6 2013 v1.0: As information is not yet available, for products subject to tariff rate quotas, the 2007 rate is used. Therefore, the protection actually applied on these products is potentially different, but this is a useful first approximation.
