The survey was sent to companies that both trade within the Alliance and belong to the largest business associations in its four member countries. At the time of writing, close to 140 responses had been submitted (Figure 9). The most represented industries are food products (22% of responses) and engines, electrical equipment and parts (16%). Importers represent 56% of responses. Important caveats to the preliminary results are the sample size and skewed distribution across countries.
