Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific

ESCAP is the leading inter-governmental platform for regional cooperation in Asia and the Pacific, covering 53 Member States and nine associate members and working closely with them to analyze and address the evolving economic, social and environmental dynamics of the region. By supporting the development of a regional intermodal network, ESCAP works to strengthen connectivity, optimize the use of existing infrastructure and increase the level of integration between the different transport modes. In doing so, ESCAP promotes the unhindered and safe movement of vehicles, goods and people across borders and through countries of the region through the establishment of regional facilitation frameworks, assistance in formulating and implementing facilitation agreements, development of models and standards, provision of facilitation tools and the harmonization of documentation and procedures. In the trade area, ESCAP assists countries, mainly least developed and landlocked developing countries with trade facilitation measures that help simplify processes and regulations.
