The Development Impact of Information Technology in Trade and Facilitation
- Florian A. Alburo(United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP))Yann Duval() (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP))Registered editor(s):
Trade Facilitation (TF), or streamlining regulatory and other procedures involved in the import or export of goods, has received increasing attention in recent years as governments realize the significant impact inefficient trade procedures can have on their countries' trade competitiveness. Simplifying trade procedures and making them more transparent has also been identified as a way to make international trade more inclusive, as this would make it easier for small and medium-sized enterprises to engage in import and export activities. At the same time, however, many trade facilitation measures identified for implementation in developing countries-often with the support of development agencies-involve the use of modern information and communications technology (ICT), to which SMEs may not always have easy access.
