    Abstract

    This book is a synthesis of the results and implications from a series of product-specific import and export process analyses conducted in selected Asian countries. It provides a unique set of micro-level information on the nature, as well as the time and cost, of trade procedures involved in moving goods from factory floor in an exporting country all the way to warehouses in an importing country. The regional study complement the more macro-level and cross-country trade facilitation indicators already available in the literature and aims at deepening our understanding of the procedural bottlenecks associated with intra-regional trade. The book is expected to be of interest to those in charge of analyzing or improving trade transaction efficiency in developing countries.
