The State of Palestine has scope to facilitate trade by streamlining procedures and enhancing transparency of rules and procedures, according to an ITC survey on non-tariff measures among 239 Palestinian exporters. Inspections, quality control measures and rules of origin are considered the most onerous measures reported by Palestinian exporters. Domestic procedural inefficiencies include delays, high fees (such as for certificates) and arbitrary behavior of officials.
The report puts forward recommendations on transparency, trade information, product quality and conformity assessment, and underlines the importance of implementing the Palestinian national export strategy.
