ECO Expert Group Meetings (EGMs) on E-Trade Cooperation is one of the activities of ECO on trade facilitation to develop the regional trade. The 1st Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on E-Trade Cooperation was hosted by Islamic Republic of Iran in 2012. The objectives of the EGM are:
- To facilitate trade by providing the Economic Operators with a single point of communication instead of dealing separately with various government authorities at multiple locations.
- To increase the governmental efficiency by saving the time of all involved parties.
- To reduce cost of doing business
- To improve the transparency of processes and ensure equal treatment across Economic Operators, as the execution of each process is logged, and can be monitored against thresholds.
