Mission Statement

The “German Alliance for Trade Facilitation” is a public-private partnership.

We make international trade simpler and faster. One focus of the German Alliance are digital solutions for cross-border trade.

We bring together the strengths of businesses, trade associations and government institutions worldwide. 

We act where the interests and challenges of the public and private sectors meet.

The main focus of the German Alliance’s projects is to contribute to the implementation of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA). A secondary focus may include specific contributions to the implementation of regional trade agreements between developing countries, in particular the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Agreement.

We create potential for economic development worldwide and thus contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
