Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationProfessional blog or online forum

The program, known as the Simplified Trade System (STS), has received ongoing government funding since 2020. But progress has been slow, with the efforts of the past three years producing little practical outcome. The STS continues to be seen as a work in progress.
