Aid for trade (multilateral) initiative


$60 million, 2014-2018

A recent multilateral aid for trade initiative, the Australian Global Trade Integration Facility, was jointly launched by the Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, and the Trade and Investment Minister, Andrew Robb, in July 2014. It will support projects on trade policy and regulations, as well as private sector development and research. This Facility includes existing aid for trade commitments as well as new investments. A new investment under the Facility is Australia’s $6 million contribution over three years to the World Bank’s Trade Facilitation Support Program.
