Description

This report presents the outcomes of the workshop on enhancement of stakeholder engagement in the implementation of WTO trade facilitation agreement. The workshop utilized the best practices and experiences on implementing WTO-TFA in APEC economies to point out the challenges facing and figure out best measures to address those challenges. Through panel discussion, solutions for all-inclusive engagement of stakeholders, which is considered as a decisive factor in the full implementation of the WTO TFA, were presented. The workshop focused on experience-sharing and discussion panels to sort out recommendations for the better stakeholders engagement, and through the workshop, established a network between APEC members for more information sharing later.
