Cross-border paperless trade has significant potential to reduce trade costs and boost trade in the Asia-Pacific region. Cross-border paperless trade refers to “international trade taking place on the basis of electronic communications, including exchange of trade-related data and documents in electronic form between relevant stakeholders across borders”. As evidenced by ESCAP Resolution 68/3 adopted in 2012 , the implementation of cross-border paperless trade has emerged as a key regional policy issue on the trade facilitation agenda in the Asia-Pacific region.
