Welcome to the UN Comtrade Monthly Trade Database.

UN Monthly Comtrade (beta version) contains detailed merchandise trade data provided by countries (or areas) to the United Nations Statistics Division, Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNSD/DESA). The "Browse Data" feature allows all users to browse and view all data. Further, up to 5,000 records can be viewed at once and downloaded. The "Bulk Download" feature is currently only made available to data providers and international/regional organizations. The "Data Release Info" tab informs about the overall development of world trade and relevant metadata such as coverage and data availability.

This is a beta version (see disclaimer under tab “Data release info”). While some improvements will be implemented on an ongoing basis, a full version of a data processing and dissemination system for monthly merchandise trade data will only be implemented as part of the upgrade of the entire UN Comtrade system, which is scheduled to be completed by 2014/2015.

For any questions or feedback, please contact us at comtrade@un.org.
