Wto Trade Facilitation Agreement (Tfa)

(iii) Members should also promote internal coordination between their trade and development agents, both in the capitals and in Geneva, in the implementation of this Agreement and technical assistance; Under the special and differentiated treatment provisions, the TFA provides developing countries and LDCs with additional time during which both groups of countries are exempt from the application of the dispute settlement agreement (Article 20). Given the stages of development, the Agreement provides for shorter and longer periods for developing countries, as well as greater flexibility for least developed countries. These reforms will increase transparency and efficiency, reduce bureaucracy and corruption, and ultimately make trade simpler, faster and cheaper. Overall, reforms have the potential to reduce trade costs by an average of 14.3% and create about 20 million jobs, especially in developing countries. The TFA is a unique opportunity to promote development goals such as sustainable growth, the fight against poverty and gender equality. It is estimated that it is in developing and least developed countries, mainly African countries, that trade costs could be significantly reduced. Prevent, prevent, prevent: developing countries and LDCs that are willing to adopt the specific and differentiated provisions of the TFA must meet the implementation communication requirements set out in the agreement. These notifications are part of the agreement. Developing countries cannot expect these flexibilities if they do not respect their part of the agreement. 7.1 In accordance with paragraph 7.3, each Member adopts additional trade facilitation measures in relation to import, export or transit procedures and procedures to operators who meet certain criteria, the following, known as approved economic operators.

In addition, a member may propose such trade facilitation measures under customs regimes, which are generally available to all economic operators, and is not required to put in place a separate system. (c) the least restrictive measure chosen where two or more alternative measures are reasonably available to achieve the political objectives concerned; and take a legal look: once a country has adopted its Class C designations, it should consider establishing a legal framework for the implementation of these measures. The first step is to conduct a thorough analysis of legal loopholes to determine where changes or new rules are needed. This is the basis of all legal business facilities. 2. Each member cooperates, where possible and where possible, under conditions agreed with other members with whom it has a common border, in order to coordinate procedures at border crossing points to facilitate cross-border exchanges. This cooperation and coordination may include: 1.2 Each Member, to the extent that it is feasible and in accordance with its domestic law and legal system, ensures that the new laws and regulations of general application relating to the transfer, release and release of goods, including goods in transit, are made public as soon as possible before they come into force. to allow merchants and other interested parties to know them. Section III contains institutional and final provisions on relations with other WTO agreements, the post-entry membership process of the agreement, the WTO Trade Facilitation Committee and the national trade facilitation committees to be set up in all WTO member states. Full implementation of FTAs is estimated to reduce trade costs by an average of 14.3% and boost world trade by up to $1 trillion per year, with the highest growth in the poorest countries.
