Trade facilitation Easy Export Programme questionnaire

Questionnaire on conditions in member countries

The purpose of this questionnaire is to gather some initial information from UPU member countries on the players involved in export processes; the various aspects of the services offered; the characteristics of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs); the participation of public and private postal operators in export processes; and, above all, the country's interest in developing activities to increase the participation of MSMEs in international trade through a simplified export system. The initial information obtained will provide a picture of the environment in which the UPU Easy Export Programme for MSMEs is to be piloted. The information gathered will be used to facilitate the design and development of tailored plans, approaches and technical assistance programmes that suit the roll-out of the programme in different country conditions. The questionnaire should be completed even if a member country is not considering taking part in the pilot project.
