3 3 Strategy Coherence and Consistency APoA Aims (a) secure access to and from the sea by all means of transport according to applicable rules of international law; (b) reduce costs and improve services so as to increase the competitiveness of their exports; (c) reduce the delivered costs of imports; (d) address problems of delays and uncertainties in trade routes; (e) develop adequate national networks; (f) reduce loss, damage and deterioration en route; (g) open the way for export expansion; (h) improve safety of road transport and security of people along the corridors. WB Transport Strategy Strategic directions 1. Create the conditions for increased support for transport investment and governance 2. Deepen engagement in the roads and highways subsector 3. Increase engagement in the urban transport subsector 4. Diversify engagement in transport for trade - support public and private infrastructure investment to overcome physical or quality bottlenecks in transport so as to enable regional and international trade in goods and services - increased attention to transport services - develop the institutional capacity to implement transport and logistics strategies - corridor approaches used in designing the strategies for major trade routes 5. Transport and climate change: control emissions and mitigate impact WB Trade Strategy Priority areas 1. Trade Competitiveness and Diversification - trade policy ; trade in services as a new means to access international best practices and expand exports; and the design and implementation of specific actions to address market and information failures 2. Trade Facilitation, Transport Logistics and Trade Finance - to reduce the costs associated with moving goods along international supply chains, whether these are measured in terms of time, money, or reliability - to enhance the performance of trade corridors used by land-linked developing countries, especially in Africa 3. Support for Market Access and International Trade Cooperation 4:Managing Shocks and Promoting Greater Inclusion
