ARTNeT acts as an information repository providing a linkage to international organizations such as the International Trade Centre, UNCTAD,
and the WTO, which in turn facilitate researchers' access to trade data and trade analysis tools. ARTNeT also
builds trade research capacity through facilitating access to relevant trade and investment related databases.
In addition to the ARTNeT Trade Publications Database, ARTNeT supports the development of the trade performance indicators component of
the Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Agreement Database (APTIAD).
