UN Global Survey on Digital and Sustainable Trade Facilitation 2019

The United Nations Regional Commissions, including ECA, ECE, ECLAC, ESCAP and ESCWA, are conducting the third Global Survey on Digital and Sustainable Trade Facilitation (formerly the Global Survey on Trade Facilitation and Paperless Trade Implementation) to collect relevant data and information from their respective Member States. The initiative will support the implementation of the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement, as well as emerging regional and global initiatives on paperless trade or e-trade, such as the recent Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-Border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific. Interested organizations, industry associations, academia, research institutes and other stakeholders, are very welcome to join the initiative.
