Focus Areas

We work flexibly across trade facilitation, trade enabling environment reform, private sector support and customs reform. Our four interrelated focus areas are:

  1. Support to expedite the movement of goods and reduce transaction costs;
  2. Support to improve Palestinian trade-related institutions and Palestine’s business enabling environment;
  3. Support to improve the private sector’s skills and innovation to export and create jobs (primarily through grants to exporters);
  4. Support to improve Palestinian Customs’ readiness to assume functions from Israel and collect revenues from trade-related taxes.
