Pakistan’s Trade Information Portal (TIPP) is now operational, in compliance with the government’s obligation to the World Trade Organization (WTO) under the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA).
According to a statement published yesterday on the Single Window Project, the TIPP is a single access point for all cross-border trade-related information (SWP). Over 530 laws, regulations, processes, and other trade-related measures from over 77 government entities have been entirely digitized and may now be accessible from anywhere.
TIPP is a website that gives the most current and complete regulatory information on imports, exports, and transit trade for any item identifiable by its HS codes, as well as statistics data for international commerce.
During the outbreak, the TIPP demonstrated its importance to traders by providing timely updates on rapidly changing rules and processes.
Increased openness and access to a wide range of data that might be crucial in making trade and investment choices are two of the benefits of Trade Information Portals. Pakistan was compelled to build its Trade Information Portal under Article X of the General Agreement on Tariff and Trade (GATT) Commitment to Transparency, following which it promised to implement the TIPP by 31 March under Article 1.2 of the WTO TFA.
