A diagnostic trade integration study (DTIS) evaluates internal and external constraints on a country’s integration into the world economy, and recommends areas where technical assistance and policy actions can help the country overcome these barriers. The studies are conducted by teams who analyze specific sectors of the economy as well as cross-cutting institutional issues, such as market access, transportation and trade facilitation, standards, poverty, and core trade policy. An action matrix facilitates discussions with the government, donors, and the private sectors after the diagnostic study is completed.
The World Bank has undertaken many of these diagnostic studies and is now also undertaking a number of updates to them. The work is largely funded with resources from the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF). Over the past several years the World Bank has adopted the diagnostic methodology for use in its dialogue with client countries. Some of the past studies have been co-financed by the Bank-Netherlands Partnership Program, the European Commission, the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, and the UK Department for International Development.
