Trade Facilitation The Road Ahead.

The 5th Anniversary of the ratification of the World Trade Organization Trade Facilitation Agreement demands reflection on the impact of the agreement thus far and the role trade facilitation plays in promoting sustainable and inclusive growth and more resilient societies. Implementation of the agreement to date shows progress but challenges remain, especially for developing and least developed economies. Join us in this Webinar to learn about critical opportunities for multilateral cooperation and technical assistance to catalyze progress, and commitments of government and private sector stakeholders to support progress. We will also discuss technical assistance priorities for advancing efficient controls and procedures to support global supply chains and opportunities presented by improving trade facilitation and digital economy integration.

We look forward to hosting Paul Fekete, Sr. International Trade Advisor at USAID; Francisco Lima Mena, Secretary General, Secretariat of Central America Economic Integration (SIECA); Robert Parker, Foreign Service Officer at USAID/Kazakhstan; and Aurelio Garcia, Trade Department Head of Programs at the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE). Please save the date for August 4, 2022 9:00 EST. Join us in this discussion, open to the public. Contact with any questions.
