Abstract
This paper presents a stepping stone into analyzing the effect that border barriers associated with trade facilitation have on landlocked developing countries. Using the ‘time taken to import’ as the main trade facilitation indicator, simulations show a negative effect between trade facilitation and landlocked countries. The results suggest that when it comes to landlocked countries, trade decreases by 0.19 percent for a 1 percent increase in the time delays. Understanding this effect offers important insights into how landlocked countries can increase trade by negotiating better trade deals that are focused towards improving trade facilitation with their trading partners, despite their asymmetric geographical differences.
