ASK Anthony

Question: What is Trade Facilitation?

Answer: Trade Facilitation is “the simplification, standardization and harmonization of procedures and associated information flows, required to move goods from seller to buyer and to make payment”. Such a definition implies that not only the physical movement of goods is important in a supply chain, but also the associated information flows. It also encompasses all governmental agencies that intervene in the transit of goods, and the various commercial entities that conduct business and move goods.At the Trade Export Promotion Agency (TEPA) we are committed to assisting exporters to conduct trade transactions in an efficient and effective manner therefore, we have assigned an officer to provide this level of support to exporters and firms requiring the same. Please contact our office for further assistance in that regard. Further information on the topic “Trade Facilitation” can be found here. http://tfig.unece.org/details.html [/column]
