WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement enters into force
The WTO has described today's ratification of the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) as a "major milestone for the global trading system".

Full implementation of the TFA is forecast to slash members' trade costs by an average of 14.3 per cent, with developing countries having the most to gain, according to a 2015 study carried out by WTO economists. The TFA is also likely to reduce the time needed to import goods by over a day and a half and to export goods by almost two days, representing a reduction of 47 per cent and 91 per cent respectively over the current average.

The TFA is the first multilateral deal concluded in the 21 year history of the World Trade Organization entered into force.

Global Grain, Food and Feed (G2F2), New Delhi, India
IGTC took the stage yesterday, Thursday, at the G2F2 conference in Delhi, which attracts around 1000 delegates annually. The IGTC’s aim was to raise awareness of its activities and relevance to Indian grain trade stakeholders and partners. As the Indian government aims to implement actions on e-phyto certificates in the coming months, there was interest in the IGTC’s work in this area, as well as the broader efforts on electronic trading documentation and phytosanitary control. The conference was under the patronage of one of the IGTC’s member associations in India: the Solvent Extractors’ Association (SEA), whose President and CEO, Atul Chaturvedi, and Executive Director, Dr. B. V. Mehta, gave a warm welcome to the IGTC. Agricultural productivity and the potential for new market dynamics were key themes. Website here.
