Coordinated Border Management

Coordinated border management: unlocking trade opportunities through one stop border posts

With the progress made in liberalising international trade through the reduction in tariff barriers, the focus is shifting increasingly to the removal of non-tariff barriers and the facilitation of legitimate trade. At the same time, border management is becoming more complex and this is compounded by the multiplicity of state agencies involved in that management. The World Customs Organization (WCO), the World Bank and other agencies have championed coordinated border management with the aim of reducing the costs of moving goods across borders. From an international coordinated border management perspective, one stop border posts have been introduced or are being considered as a mechanism to improve the movement of goods across shared borders. These arrangements have both economic and enforcement benefits. However, they need to be rooted in a sound policy and underpinned by an enabling legal framework and implementation strategy that have the support of all stakeholders.
