Abstract

ESCAP has developed eight transport facilitation models to comprehensively address challenges and enable seamless in international road transport in the region:

Together with the Regional Strategic Framework for the Facilitation of International Road Transport (available at www.unescap.org/resources/regional-strategic-framework-facilitation-international-road-transport) and the Regional Cooperation Framework for the Facilitation of International Railway Transport (available at www.unescap.org/resources/regional-cooperation-framework-facilitation-international-railway-transport), these models provide a comprehensive package of solutions for diverse challenges in cross-border and transit transport in Asia and the Pacific. A number of them are already being implemented and others have a potential to underpin further seamless movement of goods and vehicles supporting transport and trade, thereby enhancing economic growth and reducing poverty across the region, including Least Developed Countries and Landlocked Developing Countries.
