TRADE FACILITATION

Trade facilitation focuses on removing barriers to the international movement of goods to lower trade costs, at and around the borders, and along the supply chain, to make countries more competitive in regional and global markets. In the SASEC subregion, bottlenecks in trade facilitation are the leading non-tariff barriers that constrain intraregional trade. SASEC initiatives in trade facilitation aims to make cross-border trade and transport in the subregion faster, cheaper, and more predictable, while maintaining the security of the supply chain and ensuring the effectiveness and efficiency of the institutions involved.
