Building a digital transport-trade corridor in East Africa

A digitalised trade corridor enhances access to trade opportunities for inclusive growth

A digital trade corridor to improve efficiency, build trust and reduce risks to create a competitive business environment and promote sustainable inclusive prosperity.  Custom modernisation programmes, digitalising trade documents and automating processes through the implementation of highly secure electronic platforms is not only reducing costs of trade but also removing barriers that hinder the participation of citizens, especially women, in trade.  Single Window Information for Trade systems, modern custom processes, regional electronic cargo system along the main transport corridor, integrated Border Management Systems all come together to mark the beginning of a digital trade corridor in East Africa.
