Following up from the notification dated 23 August 2019 (G/TFA/N/LCA/1/Add.1), Saint Lucia hereby submits a request for an extension of the definitive date for the following provision based on Article 17 of the Trade Facilitation Agreement (WT/L/931).

Enquiry points

31 December 2021

30 June 2023

Since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak, Saint Lucia has had to alter its focus predominantly to the health sector in order to mitigate the catastrophic impact brought about by this public-health tragedy on the lives and livelihoods of the citizenry. Consequently, efforts towards the timely implementation of the provisions of the TFA proved challenging as the priority of government and other stakeholders had to be redirected to the development and implementation of pandemic response plans and economic recovery strategies.

The technical assistance and support notified as requirements for developing the framework, building human and technological capacity, and for implementing the provision in a timely manner has not been secured.
