Bangladesh Trade Facilitation

The Bangladesh Trade Facilitation Project (BTF) is working with the Government of Bangladesh to expand regional and international trade in agricultural goods by addressing systemic constraints to agricultural trade at Bangladeshi ports; simplifying and automating import and export processes; improving the capacity of government agencies, laboratories, and warehouses; and by fostering private and public investment, especially in cold storage. In doing so, BTF is supporting Bangladesh to meet obligations of the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement, Schedule C measures covering Test Procedures, Risk Management, Perishable Goods, and Formalities.
