Estimating the Benefits of cross-boarder paperless trade in Asia and the Pacific

Cross-border paperless trade refers to “trade taking place on the basis of electronic communications, including exchange of trade-related data and documents in electronic form”. The more general concept of paperless trade has been widely discussed in the trade facilitation literature, where it has been part of customs reforms efforts in a variety of countries during recent years. This chapter focuses specifically on cross-border aspects, rather than those related to issues within each country, and provides a simple estimate of the possible trade gains and cost savings from partial or full implementation of cross-border paperless trade in the Asia-Pacific region.
