The Impact of COVID-19 Mobility Restrictions on Trade Facilitation at Borders in the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation Region

The findings suggest that cargo processing time could increase by up to 70% when the most stringent level of mobility restrictions was imposed. The results also suggest that outbound border-crossing points were more affected by measures than inbound points, but were more resilient in that impact was short-lived. The study found that both inbound and outbound times increased when mobility restrictions in a trading partner tightened.
