Trade Facilitation Agreement Facility


Key contacts Main website
Type Multilateral

Since November 2014 and at request of developing and least-developed country (LDC) Members , the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement Facility (TFAF) is operational. The FTFA supports developing and LDC members to assess their needs and to identify possible assistance from regional and multilateral agencies as well as bilateral donors. Main activities of the FTAF include:

  • support to notification preparations;
  • support for capacity building; and
  • support to access the available assistance (including coordination among assistance providers and assuring that support is aligned to the specific needs of Members).

In addition and in case no funding source is available, TFAF will offer “project preparation grants” and “project implementation grants” to LDC and developing Members that notify Category C commitments.
