Trade is playing a key role in advancing the digital and green transformations. At the same time, the digital and green transformations are changing the way how goods and services are traded internationally. The United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT), under the umbrella of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), supports this global agenda through tools and guidance on effective and transparent solutions for trade facilitation and e-business. To date, UN/CEFACT and UNECE developed a series of nearly 50 policy recommendations and over 950 data exchange standards. These are used globally to simplify, standardize and harmonize trade procedures and information flows. This 2023 edition of the Summary of UNECE Trade Facilitation Recommendations provides an update on the status and availability of policy recommendations adopted by the UN/CEFACT Plenary since the previous, 2019 edition. The latest UNECE Recommendations contribute to mitigating the impact of pandemics and crises on trade flows; addressing disruptions in global supply chains; enhancing the traceability, transparency and sustainability of value chains; and enhancing public-private collaborations to advance trade facilitation efforts, among others.
