TRADE FACILITATION: REPORTS AND CASE STUDIES

Members’ implementation-related reports and case studies

The Negotiating Group on Trade Facilitation is complementing its core negotiating activities with case studies of members’ experience of the costs and benefits of improving their border management. These case studies were prepared by WTO members and observers in order to share their experience in the implementation of the trade facilitation measures that are currently being negotiated at the WTO. The technical assistance reports provide information on current programmes to support trade facilitation implementation. Other related reports can also be found on this page.
