As governments and organizations have adopted and implemented a series of measures and actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, relevant information has become abundant and dispersed in different platforms, making it hard for policy makers and trade operators to have a thorough overview of such measures. Facilitated access to such information (which is changing rapidly and frequently) is crucial, in order to enhance awareness and understanding of all these actions which have been undertaken. Within this context, trade facilitation acquires a particular importance, and mechanisms adopted to maintain the flow of safe cross border trade have emerged as key policy tools to address the challenges brought by the current global pandemic.

The COVID19 Trade Facilitation Repository is a joint platform of actions and initiatives adopted by organizations that aims at consolidating this information on trade-facilitation measures adopted by key stakeholders, which aims at facilitating access to this information by making it user-friendly, easily accessible, searchable and unifying in one single database (avoiding multiple searches in different engines and platforms). It contains a useful listing of all such initiatives and is broken down by organization, type of measure, and subject matter.

*Disclaimer: The information contained herein will be subject to periodic review and all efforts will be taken to ensure it is accurate and up-to-date. Nevertheless, the tool is for purely informative purposes and does not intend to be comprehensive and the organizations participating in the initiative do not purport to advocate or promote any particular course of action that relates to these measures, nor shall they be held responsible for any loss or damage caused by errors, omissions, misprints or misinterpretation of the contents hereof.
