Covid-19 has changed how Trade is Done - Covid Adapted Trade Gateways

About Trade Gateways

The Trade Gateways Programme operates Trade Gateways for specific places, including those as detailed below, and also helps organizations to access the tools to efficiently manage the accruing trade. It also provides the following features for each Trade Gateway.

  • Access to Local Trade Experts for guidance in trade with the relevant country
  • Access to Online Face To Face Meetings with Buyers
  • Online Face To Face Meetings with Suppliers

  • Brexit.Trade

    Following Brexit, the UK can strike its own deals for buying and selling goods and services around the world. A Trade Agreement facilitates trade - usually in goods but sometimes in services too - by making it cheaper. This is often achieved by reducing or eliminating tariffs - charges for trading across borders.

    While the UK was an EU member, it was automatically part of around 40 trade deals which the EU had struck with more than 70 countries. Post Brexit, however, there is a need for the UK to be able to access markets outside the EU that the UK has its own trade deals with. Trade Gateways are required for this to happen effectively. Brexit.Trade is such a Trade Gateway

    AFCFTA.Trade

    The African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA) is the largest single market in the world. The AFCFTA agreement is the largest trade agreement in history since the creation of the World Trade Organization. AFCTA.Trade is our Trade Gateway for the AFCFTA Region

    The agreement is expected to boost intra-African trade as it makes Africa a single market of 1.2 billion people with a cumulative GDP over $3.4 trillion. The UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) estimates that the implementation of the agreement could increase intra-African trade by 52% by 2022 (compared with trade levels in 2010) and double the share of intra-African trade (currently around 13% of African exports)

    Use of Blockchain For Commercial Transactions

    The Trade Gateways Programme features the Asset Tokenization which allows you to convert the rights to to goods being traded into a Digital Token that is traded on the Blockchain. This means Faster and Cheaper Transactions across borders, and Lower Risk

    The modern supply chain must evolve to meet new demands and supply chain challenges, and supply chain managers need to plan ahead to keep everything flowing smoothly. Using Asset Tokens on a Blockchain can help address many supply chain issues.
