WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement: a potential catalyst for equality of opportunity
Trade facilitation, understood in its simplest form as the elimination of stumbling blocks to making international trade easier, has its origins in the multilateral scene of the 1970s with the
adoption by the WCO in 1974 of its International Convention on the Simplification and Harmonization of Customs Procedures (Kyoto Convention). This Convention evolved into a more comprehensive instrument to address new realities, namely the Revised Kyoto Convention (RKC) that entered into force in 2006.
