Regional Study on Improving Regional Trade Procedures and Processes: Sri Lanka Case Study

This study examines in detail the trading procedures and processes for four import and export products of Sri Lanka, with the aim of getting an in-depth understanding of the trading process in Sri Lanka. This study has attempted to list all the required documents and procedural requirements from the point of order to shipment, and to also estimate the costs of trade for the selected products. The study maps the processes involved in the export of tea to Japan and tyres to India, and the processes involved in the import of motor vehicles from Japan and textiles from India, through a business process analysis.
