    Abstract

    The authors of this paper explore the nature, goal, functions and benefits of electronic trade facilitation and propose, based on an analysis of over 100 cases, a model describing the evolution of various trade portals at the national, regional and global level. In the context of the proposed model, the authors then examine e-readiness, international trade volumes and the current trade facilitation and trade and investment promotion in the Pacific Island countries (PICs). Based on this examination and a comparison of various approaches to electronic trade facilitation and promotion, the authors recommend the establishment of a regional, single window trade gateway for the PICs, combining trade facilitation, trade promotion and trade policy development.
