This project aims to facilitate the coordination and implementation of a regional approach to improve transparency of Non-tariff measures (NTMs) in the Arab region and overcome related trade obstacles.
ITC’s enterprise-level surveys in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region show that procedural obstacles and lack of information about market access play a major role in restricting intra-regional trade. This is especially essential for successful realization of regional integration, such as Greater Arab Free Trade Area.
Greater trade integration or Arab countries will be achieved through improved regional coordination efforts and policy leadership on transparency of Non-tariff measures, promotion of harmonization and streamlining of requirements and procedures in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
In this section you will find useful insights into the different issues related to trade development and the Non-tariff measures in the Arab region as well as the professional opinions offered by our experts and partners.
