Launch of the Online Readiness Assessment Guide for Cross-border Paperless Trade

9 Dec 2020

The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), in collaboration with the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), have developed an online platform to facilitate cross-border paperless trade readiness self-assessments. The interactive guide is designed to support countries to conduct self-assessments of legal and technical readiness on cross-border paperless trade. The new tool is relevant to all countries globally, as it can support the implementation of not only the Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-Border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific (CBFA), but also the full digital implementation of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA).

The first version of the online guide, to be launched and discussed during this event, is available at Readiness Assessment Guide for Cross-border Paperless Trade
