National Trade Facilitation Bodies (NTFBs) are important platforms for institutional coordination and stakeholders' consultation with balanced private and public sector participation. They enable the planning and implementation of successful trade facilitation (TF) reforms. UNCTAD has actively participated and supported the establishment of NTFBs in developing countries. In line with this long-standing commitment, UNCTAD created this repository containing case studies from countries that have set up NTFBs.
The data were collected through desk research and a detailed survey with national entities, providing information about different types of NTFBs. Background information about NTFBs is available here.
UNCTAD is carrying out a study on Trade Facilitation Bodies around the World. The outcomes will be published in the near future. If you would like to send or update your country's experience to this repository please contact: TFbodies@unctad.org
