Sao Paulo, Brazil. Property Rights Alliance is proud to release the world’s first International Trade Barrier Index in partnership with the Mackenzie Center for Economic Freedom.

The Index ranks 86 countries on their use of the most the direct barriers to trade: tariffs, non-tariff measures, and services restrictions, as well as their ability to facilitate trade.

The TBI was created as a response to rising trade tensions across the world that have resulted in lower growth rates, reduced trade forecasts, and an increase in trade restrictions. These conflicts create uncertainty and overlook the real issues that disrupt global commerce.
