Our work with the World Trade Organization (WTO) on e-Certs
The WTO has published new promotional material on its e-Phyto Hub project: the global initiative that aims to make it easier for countries - especially those with limited resources - to start transmitting electronic phytosanitary certificates. 

On page 3 of the publication, the role of the International Grain Trade Coalition is referenced, given our continued contribution to the successful piloting of the project, along with donor agencies and other industry associations.

The WTO publication also reports data on how e-Certs have helped increase government revenue in Kenya, and highlights that “lack of certainty in the issuing and acceptance of SPS certificates is a barrier to inclusive trade”, especially in developing countries.
