The new strategy of ITC’s trade information services adopted in 1999 1 gives a high priority
to the development of capacity of partner organizations, particularly with regard to the
dissemination of information. New information and communication technologies (ICTs),
such as the Internet, offer a wide range of dissemination facilities, enabling wide
distribution (e.g. through Web sites) or selective transmission (e.g. by email) of relevant
information at high speed, with relatively low investment.

ITC has reviewed 100 Web sites of trade support institutions and other trade information
providers in order to highlight the large variety of dissemination options available to trade
information providers. The results of this review are gathered in the present document,
which covers only Web dissemination options.

This survey is a complement and companion publication to the guidelines previously
published by ITC under the title “Trade Information Dissemination” 2. The guide discusses
all modalities for distributing trade information, not just those offered by the Internet. It is
meant to assist managers of trade information services in designing sound dissemination
strategies.

Considering the rapid developments of ICTs and related business applications, it should
be expected that some of the examples may become out-of-date -and should be replaced
by better examples - in a near future.

As the topic of information dissemination is an important part of ITC’s advisory and training
                          r
activities in the area of t ade information, readers are invited to send their comments and
suggestions for additional examples that could be included in later editions to:

                                                                                   Page 1


                        I. SUMMARY OF WEB SITES SURVEYED


Far in excess of 100 sites were examined in order to produce this survey and it should
represent the balance between the latest in cutting edge technology, integrated and global
information service providers, local Trade Promotion Organizations and Trade Support
Institutions, research institutions, free and paying web sites, business promotion models
and a large spread of countries. The purpose of this survey is not to represent the top 100
in any of the criteria discussed but to give examples of the levels of information provided
across the different continental regions. Consequently a failure to appear in the survey is
not a comment on the level of service provided by these entities.

It was particularly important to offer a broad geographical spread of countries from around
the globe. It would have been easy to select web sites from the largest trading blocks and,
while they are well represented in the survey, their presence has been significantly
curtailed from what it could have been. On the other hand, Web dissemination experience
in the developing world has been emphasized.

Examining the full survey in more detail showed that quite a good level of service was
provided by most web sites. Some of the sites were only offered in the national language
which was sometimes an obstacle to understanding and evaluating the content. However,
many other sites had solved this problem by translating at least portions of the site into
foreign languages.

In terms of content the majority of web sites faired very well. No site would be expected or
required to provide all of the information categories or services mentioned in the study.

The national market information section of the survey held few surprises in that local
market news and trade fairs registered the most hits. This information is easiest to gather,
involving little cost and energy. Perhaps a little disappointing was the lack of product
catalogues and virtual exhibitions, which are often an inexpensive way to promote
awareness of the national product offer.

The results from the international market information section were more relevant to the
topic of the study. Trade statistics and trade leads scored significantly higher than the
other services. Many TPOs tend to offer trade statistics to their constituencies. Regarding
trade opportunities / trade leads private providers (many from the US) have been fast in
understanding the business value of selling this type of information over the Internet. The
rest of the International market section was evenly represented, except in the area of
prices. Only a handful of web sites chose to provide any information whatsoever on
commodity prices, probably owing to the difficulty in keeping the information up-to-date,
and perhaps feeling it was more the remit of specialized web sites dealing with large well-
developed markets.

   Page 2


Paid subscriptions are more frequently requested for trade leads, market reports, and
electronic document delivery than for any other online service. Other items for which the
survey offers a few examples of charged subscriptions are electronic bulletins, selective
dissemination of information, and information on foreign contacts. Globally, only less than
10% of all Web sites surveyed require a paid subscription for some of their services, and
all Web sites are basically mostly free and unrestricted.

In the last part of the survey (Part three of survey format), the services described are not
referring to information categories but rather to new modes of delivery that are now
possible when using the Internet to disseminate trade information. Except may be for
electronic document delivery (possibility to download documents from the Web site) which
is already available with more than one third of all Web sites analyzed, these services are
not yet very common. A large potential for development therefore exists in these areas for
most trade information providers. Alert systems, electronic bulletins, SDI systems and
discussion forums are probably amongst the most promising online information services
for traders.

This short summary does not reflect the wealth of information of the concerned Web sites,
either in terms of contents or in terms of the various formats and modes of delivery offered.
Rather, this introduction should be seen as an invitation to visit the concerned Web sites,
one by one. The purpose of the survey is to point out a number of concrete examples and
to provide interesting material for further exploration and further analysis. Numerous
indexes of Web sites developed by specific types of organizations / or providing very
specific information services are proposed in the following pages, so as to facilitate the
guided tour recommended.

Among the many limitations of this document, one should note the fact that some
categories of trade information providers are probably under represented in this survey.
Trade associations and academic institutions are a case in point. In many cases, they offer
very relevant information for traders. However many of them lack the necessary resources
to maintain comprehensive sites on the Internet, especially in the developing world.
Another limitation is in terms of the information categories and services that are described.
Not all of them have been retained, only a selection of the most important ones. In a future
edition of this survey one might consider including additional categories or services, such
as “information on local export procedures”, or “useful lists of links”, to give only two
examples of possible additions.

Any suggestion to ITC in this regard - or in other dissemination related areas - will be most
welcome by the authors of the survey!
