CAREC Partnership Forum: Maximizing Impact of Transport and Trade Facilitation Investments
Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia: 27 May 2009
The first CAREC Partnership Forum (CPF) brought representatives of CAREC countries, CAREC multilateral partners, and other funding agencies active in the CAREC region together to consider opportunities for improving collaboration in the transport and trade facilitation sectors. Discussions centered on the CAREC Institute Foundation Study: Transport and Trade Facilitation.
Discussions highlighted opportunities to harmonize approaches to regional issues, to reduce gaps in development, and to strengthen coordination among funding agencies and countries. Improved coordination will support efficient development of priority transport corridors and ensure investments bring maximum benefits to the region.
Representatives from CAREC countries, neighboring countries, and development partners, particularly those involved in the priority sectors of transport and trade facilitation, participated.
