Committee on Trade Facilitation

The Trade Facilitation Committee was created on 22 February 2017 when the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) entered into force. The Committee held its inaugural session on 16 May 2017 and elected Ambassador Daniel BLOCKERT (Sweden) as its first chair. Further meetings were held under his chairmanship in 2017 and in early 2018. In May 2018, Ambassador Dalia KADIŠIENE (Lithuania) was elected as the new chair.

The Committee's institutional arrangements and responsibilities can be found in Article 23 of the TFA (WT/L/940).
