"The Trade Point concept can concentrate efforts and resources. It can spearhead
the efforts to improve Trade Efficiency. The Trade Points brings together
all providers of services required to make a commercial transaction: customs,
foreign trade institutes, freight forwarders, transport companies, banks
and insurance firms. Each Trade Point coordinates and shares information
with all other Trade Points. But the design of each Trade Point is undertaken
locally, following UNCTAD guidelines. The staffing and financing are primarily
locally. And therefore, each Trade Point takes into account the unique circumstances
of its location."
Address by the UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Galhi to United Nations International Symposium on Trade Efficiency (UNISTE).
The GTPN Index connects to existing Trade Points Home Pages and to relevant links on trade, investment and tourism worldwide. In some cases the Trade Points are using the UNTPDC Internet Server Incubator Services, in other cases they are operating their own servers. From the GTPN Index users can link with all Trade Points and their related Trade Efficiency members at national level.
