Evidence shows that countries open to rules-based, predictable, international trading system tend to grow faster and provide more opportunities to their people than those who do not.  IC Net helps developing countries to engage in international trade more effectively by providing technical assistance to strengthen customs transit procedures in various countries. Our focus is on improving the efficiency of transit systems by introducing new database systems, improving cross-border cargo tracking systems, establishing operational guidelines, and providing training to build capacity.
