A large part of the trade of all countries that are members of an RTA has a zero MFN rate. Less importantly, during the phase in which the regional reductions are being made, some of the rates are no less than the MFN rates, and some importers do not claim preferences for which they are eligible because of ignorance or administrative costs. Therefore, the RTA does not favour members for trade in such imports. Unfortunately, the WTO does not calculate the percentage of world trade that takes place on RTA-preferential terms.

The inside country is called the hub. This definition of a hub is too narrow. The general phenomenon is one of intersections between RTAs. A hub exists where one country (customs territory) is a member of two distinct RTAs. This is a generalisation of the Wonnacott definition. Intersections or hubs arise in several ways. Hubs may arise when one country is a member of one (bilateral or plurilateral) RTA and then The Systemic Effects of Regionalism 35 forms a new bilateral RTA with another single country outside the origin RTA, as Wonnacott discussed.
