USAID’s Southern Africa Trade Hub presented at the World Customs Organization’s (WCO) Information Technology Conference and Exhibition May 6-8, 2015, in Freeport, Bahamas on the topic “Efficient Transit Solutions for Reducing Costs of Trading.”
The three-day conference and exhibition highlighted the ways information technologies can be used in trade facilitation to support economic growth and mitigate emerging threats. The Trade Hub’s presentation provided a synopsis of USAID’s support for Trade Facilitation in Southern Africa. The Trade Hub also sponsored four delegates to the conference: the Commissioners of Customs for Namibia, Botswana, and Malawi, and a delegate representing the SADC Trade, Industry, Finance, and Investment Directorate. The delegates obtained detailed information from private sector technology providers as they prepare to make decisions about National Single Window technology solutions.
