Partner with the Alliance

Change is afoot but we need the ideas, creativity and expertise of business. Join us now and help shape the future of trade.

Government may set the rules, but it is business that trades. That is why when it comes to reforming border processes, business needs to be not just at the table, but in the driving seat. Facilitating trade is a joint responsibility in which business has a key role to play. The Alliance is a mechanism to make this happen.

Work with us to apply your problem-solving skills and innovation to the challenges your business faces every day at the border and deliver concrete actions that will reduce the cost of cross-border trade and unlock economic growth to benefit all.

How to get involved

If you are a local business or association, support a project in your country. Join our public-private dialogues and working groups to help identify trade bottlenecks, devise solutions to address them, pilot new systems, and share business data to help us identify bottlenecks and measure impact.

If you are a multinational business, join us as a partner. Our partners contribute their resources in-kind and in a wide range of ways depending on project needs. You could provide experts to assist our projects, supply data to help us identify bottlenecks and measure impact, share best practices from around the world or train in-country stakeholders in new processes. Alliance partners also connect us with subsidiaries, clients or companies in their supply chains in project countries, and act as ambassadors for trade facilitation and public-private partnerships at events, in the media and online.
