Trade is critical to Lesotho’s future and a driving force for economic growth. An enabling environment for trading is one that allows faster, fairer, more predictable, and transparent processing and clearance of imports and exports—all at the lowest cost to the traders. The Lesotho Trade Information Portal is part of the country’s Trade Facilitation Program led by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) and the Lesotho National Development Corporation (LNDC), and supported by the World Bank Group.
