Developing the Trade Facilitation Framework for a Multi-Country Consolidation Hub – SRI LANKA

01.01.2018 | Regional & General Flyers

The Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation is undertaking an ambitious project to turn Sri Lanka into a world-class center for multi-country consolidation (MCC). Given its geographic position in the center of the Indian Ocean at the crossroads of international trade, Sri Lanka is ideally positioned to become a key regional logistics hub. Enhanced MCC activities and associated value added services will drive growth in Sri Lanka’s economy, increase its employment base and deepen its connections to global value chains. By lowering the costs and increasing the ease of shipping small quantities securely, small and medium-sized enterprises will have a new access to trading partners around the world.
