  1. APEC Paperless Trade Facilitation –  This part discusses and provides an analysis of the ‘why’ for paperless trade, examines how paperless trade is addressed in current agreements, and provides high level components for paperless trade.
  2. The Pathway to Paperless Trade – This part provides the tactical framework, policy, and procedures to implement paperless trade in further detail.
