REPORT: Pacific Regional Trade Facilitation Strategy

Regional Reports and Frameworks
27 June 2024

Developed by the Pacific Islands Forum with support from the World Bank Group, the strategy aims to reduce the time and cost of trading goods across borders, boosting trade in the Pacific.

The Strategy’s scope is defined by three key criteria: supporting the implementation of trade facilitation measures in existing Pacific trade agreements; addressing common priorities identified by Pacific Island  Countries (PICs); and aligning with other regional initiatives such as the PAfTS.

The Strategy’s vision is a Pacific Region where trade flows freely, efficiently, and inclusively, driving 
sustainable economic growth and development for all. Our mission is to create an enabling environment for 
trade facilitation through regional cooperation, capacity-building, and policy reforms.
