Note: the ВЕС classification and concordance of BEC-HS1996 can be accessed via https://wits.worldbank. org/product_concordance.html, and data of elasticity of substitution is obtained from Broda and Weinstein (2006). A product is classified to the High Group if its elasticity of substitution is higher than the average level, to the Low otherwise.
