Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation

The private sector is one of the primary beneficiaries of Trade Facilitation measures. That is why the governments of Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States have joined forces with the World Economic Forum (WEF), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) in the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation. The Alliance partners have established a unique public-private platform to leverage business expertise, leadership, and resources to support effective trade facilitation reforms. The WEF and the ICC enjoy the trust of the private sector and have the necessary structures to involve the private sector. CIPE and implementing partners like GIZ have profound experience with the implementation of development cooperation projects. The Global Alliance will implement first projects in 10 potential pilot countries.
