    COMESA has developed a tool that will assist governments and other stakeholders to monitor both the direct and hidden Non Tariff Barriers (NTBs), that relate to Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) measures and technical standards. The tool is complimentary to the broader trade facilitation initiatives under the COMESA integration agenda such as the one stop border posts (OSBPs).

    Speaking during the official opening of the 2nd Steering Committee Meeting under the Breaking Barriers Facilitating Trade Project at Pamodzi Hotel in Lusaka, Zambia on 16th May 2016, Assistant Secretary-General in Charge of Administration and finance, Ambassador Nagla El Hussainy said the project is very important as it is at the core of trade facilitation work under regional integration.

    Ambassador Nagla said evidence shows that SPS measures and technical standards constitute nearly 80% of the reported Non Tarrif Barriers (NTBs) adding that COMESA’s intra trade is still at less that 12% due to NTBs.
