Finlandia dona 160.000 euros al Mecanismo para el Acuerdo sobre Facilitación del Comercio
Finlandia ha aportado 160.000 euros (unos 176.000 francos suizos) al Mecanismo para el Acuerdo sobre Facilitación del Comercio de la OMC, con objeto de ayudar a los países en desarrollo y los países menos adelantados a aplicar el Acuerdo sobre Facilitación del Comercio, el primer acuerdo multilateral de la OMC en 20 años.

Director-General Roberto Azevêdo said: “This latest donation from Finland will help to ensure that the WTO's poorest members benefit fully from the Trade Facilitation Agreement. By cutting the time and cost involved in moving goods across borders, this Agreement will boost trade in developing and least-developed countries. I therefore warmly welcome Finland's continued generosity.”
Finland’s Ambassador to the WTO, Ms Päivi Kairamo, said: “The WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement agreed in Bali in 2013 will help WTO members make their customs procedures more efficient, reduce trade costs and enhance their participation in global value chains. Through this donation to the Trade Facilitation Agreement Facility, Finland is continuing its support for the multilateral trading system by helping developing countries implement the new Agreement.”
This is Finland's first contribution to the TFAF, and the fourth largest since the fund was established. Overall, Finland has donated nearly EUR 12 million (over CHF 13 million) to WTO trust funds in more than 15 years.
