Measuring and monitoring the implementation of Trade Facilitation Reforms

11:30 am
 – 1:00 pm

As bodies responsible for the coordination and implementation of trade facilitation reforms, National Trade Facilitation Committees (NTFCs) are involved in several initiatives running in parallel, led by different stakeholders. Thus, NTFCs require means to assess and keep track of these reform-initiatives, resources allocated to their implementation, and their impact.

This session seeks to unveil the different tools available to measure and monitor the implementation of trade facilitation measures at the national level as well as to compare performance at the regional and international levels.

The session will look at providing answers to the following questions:

  • How do these tools work?
  • How do these initiatives increase accountability of NTFCs members?
  • What are the benefits and lessons learned from deploying these tools?
  • What is the way forward?
