TFIG Training Workshop

TFIG Training Workshop

19 - 23 September 2016
Accra Ghana

Trade facilitation (TF) has become a key policy issue for both governments and business as it cuts the costs of doing trade, reduces delays at the border, and makes public agencies dealing with trade more efficient. It is at the heart of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Doha Round of negotiations.

The UN Trade Facilitation Implementation Guide is a web-based interactive tool to help countries better understand the key elements and instruments of trade facilitation. A set of case stories on how countries have succeeded in facilitating trade complements the Guide. It is available at:

Purpose of the workshops
The workshop aims to train participants on how to use the Guide for TF reform efforts and to stimulate the sharing of best practices and the discussion of opportunities for inter-agency cooperation in the TF areas covered in the Guide (Process simplification, Cross border management, Consultation and cooperation for TF, Single Window implementation, Documents simplification, etc.).
