Enhancing Export Competitiveness through Trade Facilitation: the Experience of Sri Lanka
In: Impact of Trade Facilitation on Export Competitiveness: a Regional Perspective
AbstractIn line with the liberalization of the economy, the Government of Sri Lanka undertook several measures to introduce accompanying policies that would facilitate trade and integrate the economy with the global economy.
