Moving towards Paperless Trade Documents for Palestinian Imports and Exports Workshop

In cooperation with UNCTAD, PSC held a workshop about 'Moving towards Paperless Trade Documents for Palestinian Imports and Exports' in Ramallah on October, 8th 2008. The workshop included presentations by two UNCTAD experts and one expert from the UNECE on trade facilitation, import and export procedures, transit, electronic documents for trade and Single Window, and was attended by approximately 80 representatives of the private sector, government agencies and international organization. The presentations were well received, and participants expressed their appreciation of being exposed to modern trends and solutions.

The workshop also featured a discussion of existing overland transport and customs procedures, which continue to inflate transaction costs facing Palestinian traders. The participants reported a state of confusion as to the exact procedures governing Palestinian trade activities, pointing out the shifting nature of these procedures in the light of the ever tightening of Israeli movement restrictions both within the oPt and at main border crossings.

The workshop ended with the adoption of a number of specific conclusions to foster the Council's trade facilitation efforts.
