The Philippines – Trade Facilitation Challenges for Women Traders and Customs Brokers: Survey Findings and Recommendations

January 10th, 2022

The World Bank contracted A2F Consulting to conduct a Trade Facilitation Survey in the Philippines. 

A2F Consulting and The World Bank Group have recently completed the trade and gender study in the Philippines to identify the specific challenges that men and women face in cross-border trade and determine where further reforms can be made. 

Over 2,000 traders and customs brokers were interviewed. The report provides a wealth of new data and includes a summary of key findings, as well as recommendations on how to address the main obstacles identified. This analysis can help governments better understand trade barriers and design policy that maximizes the benefits of trade for women so that they can participate more fully in the economy.
