Barriers to trade and investment are widespread
European companies face barriers to trade and investment in a wide range of advanced and emerging economies. These measures are found both at the border and behind the border. The top-10 most restrictive markets are all members of the G20.
European economies remain among the most open in the world for trade in goods and in services. It is essential that all major economies reverse the trend towards protectionism seen in recent years and open up their markets.
