France provides assistance and support for capacity building on trade facilitation to developing country and least developed country Members by different canals. The Directorate-General of treasury and the Directorate-General of Customs and Indirect Taxes participate in the area of trade facilitation either through International organisations : World Trade Organisation, International Monetary Fund, etc. either, bilaterally directly with countries that need foreign aid to improve trade facilitation. This aid is implemented by French operators such as l’Agence française de développement.
