Date: 07 Dec 2015

Time: 8:45 AM

Location: Washington DC, United States

Narrowing the Borders: Trade Facilitation in Latin America and the Caribbean to be held at the IDB headquarters on December 7 will bring together representatives from international organizations, governments, and the private sector to discuss the impacts of recent trade facilitation initiatives in LAC, as well as key policy priorities of this important agenda. In the context of this meeting, the Integration and Trade Sector (INT) of the IDB will present a series of innovative databases and analysis (including firm level data), to evaluate the effects of trade facilitation programs such as the use of risk management systems, expedited transit regimes, single windows, authorized economic operators, and simplified postal export schemes in various LAC countries. These studies will provide a first look into next year INT’s flagship report on trade facilitation “Out of the Border Labyrinth”.
