After significant research and expert engagement has been made in 2018, the Business Process Analyses (BPA) were prepared and presented to the national authorities in CEFTA Parties. The BPA’s have mapped out the export and import processes of each participating CEFTA party and identified the bottlenecks causing inefficiencies in customs and other international trade procedures (including documents and data requirements). The local authorities have provided their inputs and opinions to the reports, based on which the reports were updated. Based on the final reports the national needs for improvement will be identified and the project will continue supporting national authorities in tackling those issues. The regional report is currently being prepared, to be presented to the respective authorities in September this year.
