Developing a Risk Management System for Participating Government Agencies of India: Policy Lessons in Trade Facilitation Design

Publication | November 2021

This working paper outlines specific development needs for six major participating government agencies on trade facilitation in India, including a comprehensive single window trade facilitation system.

Trade facilitation is a critical building block of developing globally integrated value chains. In India, current trade facilitation systems including risk assessment criteria require improvements involving regulatory mandates for food and drugs, animal and plant quarantine, wildlife protection, and textile products. The paper provides a model for developing a comprehensive risk management system that covers various risk factors in trade facilitation.
