Virtual Conference: Introduction of ePhytos – leveraging Morocco’s experience of digitizing trade facilitation and COVID-19 recovery globally

Thursday 25th March 2021, 9.30-11am CET

This forthcoming session at the WTO’s Aid for Trade Stocktaking Event 2021 will showcase Morocco’s experience with the introduction of electronic phytosanitary certificates (ePhytos). The project has shown strong results in terms of time and cost reductions and ensuring safe and fair agricultural trade. It has also inspired Germany to fund additional Trade Facilitation measures to boost trade flows and strengthen economic recovery in partner countries. The Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation and the International Plant Protection Convention will explain the concept and next steps on how ePhyto introduction can be replicated as a means to accelerate Covid-19 recovery. The session will be hosted jointly by Morocco and Germany.

Registrations open early March.
