Make complex trade procedures understandable
Any trade procedure can be included
The first step towards simplification
Why it matters
- Traders have access to clear and accurate information on trade procedures. They are able to send complaints, report misconduct and propose simplifications online.
- National trade facilitation committees can identify how to simplify procedures and cut the cost of operating or trading. The number of steps, the requirements and the duration can generally be decreased by more than 50%, without even changing the underlying laws. for example in Kenya the steps and time to register coffee consignments were halved and costs to traders cut by $230.
Digital information portals are available to any government and can be implemented within existing laws. We also work with partners such as the International Trade Centre and Trademark Africa. They can be installed on nationally-controlled servers with a license for use in perpetuity and a full training package.
