Trade Facilitation for Sustainable Development Training.
Trade Facilitation for Sustainable Development Course.
Trade facilitation is a concept directed towards reducing the complexity and cost of the trade transaction
process and making the procedures more efficient, transparent and predictable. It comprises the whole
trade chain from exporter to importer, including cross border trade facilitation , with emphasis on the
border- crossing and the agencies involved there. Globalization has increased the opportunities for international
trade. Trade facilitation can be a prerequisite to make use of these trading opportunities. Trade
facilitation is hence becoming an increasingly important tool for development, allowing countries to trade
goods on time with low transaction costs. This interactive course intends to raise awareness of stakeholders
from public and private sectors on trade facilitation, build their capacity on using relevant trade facilitation
instruments, and enable them to more effectively support or participate in implementing trade facilitation
measures in their respective countries.
