    Sad that I missed this, its an interesting area that I have been involved in since 2003 but mostly working at the regional, sub-regional and transit corridor level working closely with the COMESA, the EAC and others.

    Currently at TradeMark East Africa we are working in 4 key areas of electronic single windows, integrated border management, transit bonds and alternatives as well as data analysis for ports, revenue authorities and transit corridors via the transport observatory projects at the corridor authorities level.

    Definitely in for the next one!
