As digital technologies continue to transform economies, the Global Trade Modernization Index (GTMI) assesses economies' readiness for digital trade, encompassing both public and private sectors, as well as labor force capability. The GTMI beta edition integrates five pillars of digital trade readiness: (1) Paperless Trade, (2) Trade Openness, (3) Regulatory Environment, (4) Business Readiness, and (5) Human Capital.  This edition covers 65 economies and 27 indicators with new data from public and private sources. 


Find out what the numbers say, and explore the opportunities for digital trade in Hong Kong, Asia, and beyond, at the Global Trade Modernization Index launch.
