Improving Trade Facilitation and Customs Support (TFCS) in the Occupied Palestinian Territories

Middle East and North Africa - Palestine

2020-2023 | FCDO | GBP 15M

Trade Facilitation  and Customs Support in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (TFCS OPTs) is being implemented by a consortium of organizations under the leadership of Cowater International to facilitate and develop increases in trade from the Occupied Palestinian Territories .  TFCS’s overall goal is to facilitate an inclusive and viable export-led growth for the OPTs. This is being carried out with a focus on growth that will be more inclusive for Palestinian firms and individuals – especially youth, women and Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) – through improved investment and income generating opportunities. TFCS is also  supporting the Palestinian Authority’s capacity in customs and revenue collection from trade related taxes to improve government resources for areas such as social services and to invest in improvements to the business enabling environment.
