Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation

The Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation – jointly established by the Forum, the International Chamber of Commerce, and the Centre for International Private Entreprise – works with the public and private sectors to identify bottlenecks in the supply chain and implement targeted solutions to facilitate trade. Results are measured by commercial metrics and are in line with the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement. The Alliance is funded by Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, UK and US and benefits from the expertise of GIZ, the German development agency. It also leverages in-kind contributions from the private sector.

The Alliance programme expects to run 10 consortium-led (type 3) projects in 2018. Currently, projects are being implemented in Brazil, Colombia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Sri Lanka and Vietnam with additional projects being designed and explored.
