Launching of Trade Obstacles Alert Mechanism, The Westin Turtle Bay Resort & Spa,
Balaclava, 10th September 2015
The Trade Obstacles Alert Mechanism (TOAM) was successfully launched on Thursday 10th September 2015 by the Hon Minister E. Sinatambou, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade. The speech of the Hon. Minister is attached herewith.
The TOAM is an online platform which aims at facilitating the resolution of trade obstacles by favoring the exchange of information between commercial operators and public institutions. By using this platform, commercial operators will be able to report trade obstacles which they may be facing in Mauritius or on foreign markets to the Ministries/Orgnisations concerned through an alert system. These Government Agencies/Organisations concerned, will then be expected to respond to these trade alerts and take remedial measures, where required.
The objective, is to identify and eliminate trade barriers, enhance transparency in the decision making process and improve public and private sector dialogue.
