Advancing cross-border paperless trade: Nurturing a digital trade environment

4:00 pm
 – 5:00 pm

Paperless trade supports the post-pandemic recovery of countries. The session will introduce tools for advancing cross-border paperless trade and conducting readiness assessment for cross-border paperless trade. Based on a newly developed toolkit for cross-border paperless trade and experiences from 8 country assessments completed and 7 ongoing assessments, it will share experiences on how readiness assessment may be conducted and how it offers a comprehensive framework for countries to take the agenda forward, to develop and update their national policies, strategies and planning and ultimately nurture environments for e-commerce and digital trade.

The meeting is co-organized by ESCAP, UNCITRAL, EIF and WTO
