The Workshop’s objectives were to present the findings of the analytical study ‘BIMSTEC Trade Facilitation Strategic Framework 2030’ and gather feedback from the stakeholders of Member States towards finalizing the Study Report.

The Workshop provided an opportunity to focus on the importance of an integrated and coordinated strategy to enable trade facilitation and learn about best practices in the implementation of trade facilitation in the region. The Workshop helped in gathering valuable feedback from the delegates of BIMSTEC Member States, which ADB will incorporate in updating and finalizing the BIMSTEC Trade Facilitation Strategic Framework 2030.
