Core material

Training Manual: Trade Facilitation Implementation Plan

This training manual has been developed for handling workshops based on the contents of the Trade Facilitation Implementation Guide (TFIG). It provides guidelines and tools for a three-day workshop on the Guide. It helps trainers to prepare for their sessions, shows them how to structure the training, and gives pedagogical and didactical guidelines for achieving the participant learning objectives.
