Accelerating the implementation of trade facilitation reforms through the national trade facilitation committees despite the pandemic situation:
The forum will provide a possibility for members of national trade facilitation committees, policymakers, and other relevant stakeholders to learn about and discuss the latest trends regarding implementation of trade facilitation reforms, including the implementation of the WTO TFA and other trade facilitation agreement at the national and the regional level. Experts and practitioners will be sharing insights on good practices regarding trade facilitation implementation with a view to providing members of the NTFCs and other stakeholders with evidence on how planning, organization, automation and digitalization can assist in advancing and accelerating trade facilitation reforms, in particular through the current pandemic situation and the post-covid recovery era.
Policy makers, trade, and Customs officials, and business representatives will contribute to the discussions on the success factors in the implementation of Trade Facilitation reforms.
The event will offer a unique opportunity for countries to get information on the available programmes at UNCTAD and partner organizations. Participants will also have the chance to interact online with donors, regional organizations and international organizations during the Q&A segment of the event.
Participating countries: All UN Members.
