According to ADB Technical Assistance Report, the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program’s strategic framework for 2011–2020 (CAREC 2020) has two strategic objectives: expand trade and improve industrial competitiveness. Trade facilitation is one of four priority areas within the CAREC 2020 strategic framework. Work in this area is guided by the Transport and Trade Facilitation Strategy 2020, which focuses on the development of six CAREC corridors through infrastructure investments and trade facilitation initiatives to improve the movement of goods and people through and across these corridors. This TA will support the continuation of customs reforms and modernization efforts undertaken by CAREC countries. The impact of the TA will be improved flow of goods and people within the CAREC region. The outcome will be improved trade facilitation in CAREC countries.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
