Agreement on Trade Facilitation (TFA)

Trade facilitation makes cross border trade in goods easier and less costly, and creates a more transparent and predictable trading environment. Following the conclusion of negotiations at the Ninth Ministerial Conference in 2013, HKC was the first WTO member to formally accept the TFA in December 2014, and fully implemented all relevant provisions upon their entry into force. HKC continues to contribute to the effective implementation of the TFA by sharing our experience with other WTO members.
