    E-invoicing in cross-border trade

    The transition from paper invoices to e-invoices is an example of how new technology can improve and rationalise previous manual and lengthy procedures. The purpose of the study is to give a description of precisely what the primary barriers are to increased cross-border use of e-invoices. An increased use of e-invoices should facilitate international trade and simplify a process that currently requires many manual and repetitive action.

    Practical Aspects of Border Carbon Adjustment Measures

    - Using a Trade Facilitation Perspective to Assess Trade Costs

    Border carbon adjustment (BCA) measures are being discussed as a response to concerns regarding carbon leakage and competitiveness in a number of OECD countries, although no country has implemented these types of BCA measures yet. This analysis aims to complement the studies done on legal and economic issues with a discussion on the practical challenges and costs relating to the different ways a BCA could be constructed.

    The Importance of Services for Manufacturing Companies and Possible Trade Policy Implications

    This case study of Sandvik Tooling (a part of the Swedish manufacturer, Sandvik Group) shows that the company needs over 40 different services to establish and uphold their supply chain.

Vi finner att företagen använder, producerar, säljer och exporterar alltmer tjänster – industrin tjänstefieras.

    Open Trade or Protectionism?

    Developments in trade policy since 1995

    Globally, the growth of international trade is outpacing production, and investments are increasing more rapidly still. This study by the Swedish National Board of Trade shows that the twelve years following 1995 saw a period of increased openness and free trade. Meanwhile, progress in trade policy has been limited in recent years. A common impression obtained from various investigations is that support for protectionism is on the rise, perhaps as an effect of globalization.

    Trade Facilitation and Swedish Experiences

    The National Board of Trade has the task of promoting a free trade with transparent rules. Our work thus aims at minimising all kinds of obstacles to trade. Trade facilitation is an important part of this - and increasingly so with decreasing levels for tariffs. Trade facilitation is hence becoming an increasingly important tool for development.

    Adding Value to the European Economy

    - How Anti-Dumping can Damage the Supply Chains of Globalised European Companies. Five Case Studies from the Shoe Industry

    The aim of this study is to examine whether anti-dumping measures, traditionally used against industrial goods like steel, are suited for modern globalised trade with consumer goods. We show, using five cases from the shoe industry, that European companies are damaged, not protected, by anti-dumping

    Climate Measures and Trade

    Legal and Economic Aspects of Border Carbon Adjustment

    This study focuses on the legal and economic aspects of a border carbon tax or a carbon regulation requiring participation in a domestic cap-and-trade system, referring to both as border carbon adjustment. It examines what literature has to say about the legal implications and looks into the arguments given for introducing border carbon adjustments.

    Supply Chain Security Initiatives

    A Trade Facilitation Perspective

    The number of security initiatives that exert an influence on international trade has increased continuously after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The requirements placed on the international supply chain are increasing steadily and it is becoming all the more difficult to obtain an exhaustive picture of the entire system of security requirements. The Swedish Trade Procedures Council (SWEPRO), which is a Swedish forum for cooperation on trade procedures, has established that there is a need for comprehensive information on the security initiatives and the effects they have on international trade. This report, produced by the Swedish National Board of Trade, is a response to this need. The report contains a survey of the most important initiatives, some of the economic studies that have been made on the subject, and a detailed comparison between security initiatives in the USA and EU.
