Sri Lanka: Company Perspectives on Non-Tariff
International Trade Centre Series on Non-Tariff Measures
Non-tariff measures (NTMs) are of particular concern to exporters and importers in developing countries, for which they may represent a major impediment to international trade and market access. This publication is the first in a series of publications on NTMs aimed at increasing transparency and understanding about NTMs in order to facilitate trade in the long run. It is based on a novel approach to studying the impact of NTMs through large-scale national enterprise surveys. This allows the business community to have a voice, including small- and medium-sized enterprises, which have firsthand day-to-day experience with NTMs and can provide invaluable insights for policymakers, trade support institutions and the international community.
