An Analysis of Import and Export Processes

image of Trade Facilitation in Asia and the Pacific
This book offers a synthesis of the results and implications from a series of business process analyses of procedures involved in importing and exporting goods to and from selected Asian countries. It aims at deepening the understanding of the nature and significance of the procedural bottlenecks associated with intra-regional trade. It provides a unique set of micro-level information on the time and cost of trade procedures, complementing the more macro-level and cross-country trade facilitation indicators already available in the literature. It will be of interest to those in charge of analyzing or improving trade transaction efficiency in developing countries.



Improving import-export procedures and processes in Sri Lanka

International trade transactions are most effective when they involve parties that are efficient and coordinate well with each other. While individual companies and persons can undertake certain measures in this regard, some measures have to be undertaken at the country level. A deep understanding of trading processes is required in order to identify areas that create bottlenecks in trading and to take measures to minimize those bottlenecks.
