On May 19, 2020, the World Customs Organization (WCO) announced that it has collaborated with several other organizations, including the World Trade Organization, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, and the International Air Transport Association, to launch a COVID-19 Trade Facilitation Repository.  The repository will consolidate initiatives taken by the organizations and their stakeholders to provide easy access to these resources.  The initiative listing is broken down by organization, type of measure, and subject matter.  The repository will be continually updated with the ongoing goal of “ensuring that the seamless flow of safe cross-border trade continues, especially with regard to essential goods which are crucial for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The press release, which includes the repository link, can be found here:
