As governments continue their efforts to reduce trade costs by streamlining trade-related procedures and enhancing the quality of related infrastructure and services, it is important that officials in charge of developing future plans in this area be fully cognizant of the available data and indicators they may use to monitor progress. Accordingly, this Handbook, developed by ESCAP in collaboration with OECD and other partners, aims at providing a comprehensive source of information on publicly available cross-country databases and indicators relevant to trade facilitation in a format easy to use for both trainers and individual readers alike.
