Work with us as a business

The private sector plays a vital role in the work of the Alliance at all levels, from steering our global strategy to driving country projects on the ground.

All of our projects help to create an environment where businesses can trade more easily, with predictable procedures, streamlined regulations and modern automation.

Our unique approach to trade facilitation is to bring businesses in as equal partners to governments in designing and delivering projects from start to finish.



We are looking for multinational businesses from across a broad range of sectors to join us as partners.

  • Contribute your resources. This could mean providing your experts to assist on our projects, sharing data and metrics to help us measure impact, sharing best practice from around the world, or delivering training to in-country stakeholders on new processes. Each project will require different support.
  • Connect us with your contacts in project countries. That could be your subsidiaries, clients or companies in your supply chain.
  • Act as our ambassadors. This could mean speaking at events, in the media, or online about the importance of trade facilitation reform and the Alliance’s approach to public-private partnerships.
