Description

APEC has identified underdeveloped multimodal transport capabilities as one of the priority chokepoints to be addressed under the Supply Chain Connectivity Framework. To help economies understand further how multimodal links are vital to the connectivity of modern supply chains and trade, the APEC Committee on Trade and Investment (CTI) tasked the Policy Support Unit (PSU) to undertake a study to quantify how enhanced and efficient multimodal connectivity could contribute to economic integration and the competitiveness of the region.
