This quick legal action plan development tool could be used once the legal readiness checklist is answered. (The readiness assessment Guide can help understand and answer the questions in the checklist). It could assist in developing action plans towards cross-border paperless trade based on the assessment conducted (based on the legal checklist). This tool sets out core questions (higher-level or more expressed), flags possible priority areas, as well as potential actions. The tool will be especially relevant for a state at the early stage of cross-border paperless trade to explain the types of activity likely needed when the assessment is conducted.
Click all sections (following the structure of the legal readiness checklist and the legal guide) of the country’s priority and where actions are most needed – then the potential actions will be presented, along with core questions and priority areas.
This list of actions generated from the quick assessment are general and indicative in nature. These may be further elaborated upon and revised, considering each individual country’s environments and in consultations with relevant stakeholders. Elaborated and revised recommendations could be used to draft an action plan for cross-border paperless trade, as in the Article 12 of the Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific.
