Data for: How Much Will the Belt and Road Initiative Reduce Trade Costs?

Our paper documents a new database we created, and which provides detailed information on the potential decrease in trade costs associated with the Belt and Road Initiative. For each country-pair-sector, we provide the decrease in shipping time, the value of time, and the associated decrease in trade costs. We also provide a regional database with detailed information at the city-pair level.
