What we do

We are on a mission to make international trade simple, fast and cost-effective, creating new business opportunities, enabling greater economic and social development and reducing poverty.

The Alliance brings together governments and businesses as equal partners to address delays and unnecessary red-tape at borders and design and deploy targeted reforms that deliver commercially quantifiable results.

Our work helps governments in developing and least developed countries implement the World Trade Organization’s Trade Facilitation Agreement.
