German Alliance for Trade Facilitation

The "German Alliance for Trade Facilitation" is a public-private partnership. With support from the German Federal Government, companies, business associations and ministries around the world come together to make international trade faster and simpler. Currently, 27 companies from various sectors are part of the Alliance.

In the joint projects, the time and costs involved in cross-border trade are reduced significantly. The German Alliance assist developing countries and emerging economies in removing bureaucratic barriers and making customs procedures more efficient and secure, in particular through use of digital solutions.

The World Trade Organization’s Trade Facilitation Agreement creates the framework for our strategy and approach. Furthermore, projects aim at implementation of trade facilitation measures as part of regional trade agreements, such as the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). By facilitating trade and economic development the Alliance contributes to the 2030 Agenda and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
