About the product
National Trade Facilitation Committees (NTFCs) are the coordinating bodies for trade facilitation initiatives at national level. They have existed in different forms in a limited number of countries since the 1950s. This report provides an update to previous UNCTAD studies on NTFCs. It is the most extensive and inclusive NTFC publication ever made. It benefits from data from more than 130 countries, representing all continents and levels of development. The study introduces UNCTAD’s novel Sustainability Score for National Trade Facilitation Committees. This Score aims at assessing the sustainability prospects of NTFCs.
