The Global Facilitation Partnership for Transportation and Trade (GFP) aims at pulling together all interested parties, public and private, national and international, who want to help achieve significant improvements in transport and trade facilitation in World Bank member countries. The Partners have together agreed to design and undertake specific programs towards meeting this objective, making use of their respective comparative advantage in the subject matter in a coordinated fashion.
The United Nations Trade Facilitation network has been established as a common platform for UN agencies involved in trade facilitation activities. It has been launched in response to the request from the High Level Committee on Programs of the United Nations Chief Executives Board to identifying Trade Facilitation issues to be addressed in a coordinated manner within the United Nations system. Recognizing that these agencies have different approaches to trade facilitation, this platform concentrates information on each agency's approach. It provides a doorway for users to investigate further the work carried out by one or another UN agency.
The website is designed as a "single window" for worldwide trade facilitation information and resources. It is maintained by the GFP Core Partners and informs both on GFP partner activities and other important trade facilitation events worldwide, sorted by TTF topics.
