Readiness Assessments for Cross-Border Paperless Trade

About the Project

ESCAP Interim Intergovernmental Steering Group on Cross-border Paperless Trade Facilitation has developed Legal and Technical Readiness Checklists as part of its support to the implementation of the Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific. On that basis, ESCAP has conducted readiness assessments for cross-border paperless trade in selected countries in Asia and the Pacific region. An interactive guide is available to support countries to conduct self-assessments of legal and technical readiness on cross-border paperless trade. The national reports include findings from the technical and legal readiness assessments, recommendations, and individual action plans for countries to move forward towards cross-border paperless trade. These reports can serve as a valuable foundation to elaborate more detailed activities at the national and agency level in this area, with identifiable timeline and budget sources.
