The Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation has launched a new project with the government of Guatemala that will simplify, standardize, and digitize documentation and procedures at its major ports, with benefits that can ripple across its economy.

For the public sector, the switch to automated processes will ease the controls performed by customs, health, agriculture, and immigration authorities and permit more effective coordination.
