    Trade Facilitation and Swedish Experiences

    The National Board of Trade has the task of promoting a free trade with transparent rules. Our work thus aims at minimising all kinds of obstacles to trade. Trade facilitation is an important part of this - and increasingly so with decreasing levels for tariffs. Trade facilitation is hence becoming an increasingly important tool for development.

    Supply Chain Security Initiatives

    A Trade Facilitation Perspective

    The number of security initiatives that exert an influence on international trade has increased continuously after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The requirements placed on the international supply chain are increasing steadily and it is becoming all the more difficult to obtain an exhaustive picture of the entire system of security requirements. The Swedish Trade Procedures Council (SWEPRO), which is a Swedish forum for cooperation on trade procedures, has established that there is a need for comprehensive information on the security initiatives and the effects they have on international trade. This report, produced by the Swedish National Board of Trade, is a response to this need. The report contains a survey of the most important initiatives, some of the economic studies that have been made on the subject, and a detailed comparison between security initiatives in the USA and EU.

    The WTO decision on compulsory licensing

    On August 30, 2003, the World Trade Organization, WTO, accepted a set of new rules intended to improve access to medicines in developing countries. In this study, the National Board of Trade analyses whether this new set of rules can enable import of patented medicines to developing countries. There is a yearly review of the new rules in the Council for TRIPS in the WTO but so far it has not been a substantive review of the new system as such.
