GCCF was awarded a five-year subcontract supporting the Bangladesh Trade Facilitation (BTF) project. This is a USDA-funded project focused on expanding trade in agricultural products by reducing the cost of trade; decreasing the release time of imported agricultural goods; and increasing agricultural productivity by improving processes through increased transparency, streamlining, and automation.
GCCF supported the comprehensive trade assessment by performing a cold storage ecosystem assessment. Looking forward, GCCF will advance the legal framework for warehouse operations, streamline warehouse processes, engage the private sector on cold storage infrastructure, develop material to incentivize and attract investors and operators, identify and support potential investors and operators, offer training, and build capacity of certification bodies for food safety management.
