The slowing down global economy growth was captured with different statistics. However, World Trade Organization's observations may reveal some new aspects of slowing growth. According to the World Trade 2011, Prospects for 2012, WTO's press release on 12 April 2012, the world trade expended in 2011 by 5.0%, wich is a sharp deceleration from 2010 rebound of 13.8%. Moreover, it was predicted that the growth will slow further to 3.7% in 2012. On World Trade Report 2012 released on 16 July, 2012, WTO focused on new international trade challenges - increased use of non-tarif measures. These measures reflect regulatory standards for manufactured and agricultural goods. So, political concerns about the health, safety, environmental quality and other social aspects may affect international trade even more than tariffs.
Consequently, value creation should be a priority of stability policy, shouldn't it?
