Realizing this trend, Ethiopian policy makers have started paying more attention to addressing trade-discouraging non-tariff barriers. This being the case, while there exists some theoretical and empirical literature on the determinants of flow of goods and services across borders and studies in this area are important to diagnose the status of trade facilitation efforts in the country, however, there is a dearth of studies which focus on the ground level status of trading constraints and trade facilitation challenges in Ethiopia.
The ultimate objective of this study is therefore identifying the major determinants of constraints of international trade in the country. To this end the study will be helpful among others in; a Examining the role of the existing international economic agreements towards the harmonization of global standards on cross border trade b Evaluating the provisions of trade facilitation endeavors in Regional Trade Agreements and to assess their implications in promoting predictability by harmonization of regulatory standards within the system c Giving recommendations to policy makers in Ethiopia on the most suitable forum for effective regulation of matters affecting international trade.
Currently such knowledge is seldom found in one place. This work thus attempts to fill an important information gap in the area. Methodology Information to be collected for the purpose of this study will be based on literature reviews, field survey and informal interactions with various key personalities in the country.
Literature review For background discussion and theoretical explanation, the research will rely on secondary data. Fieldwork Fieldwork, primarily involving questionnaires will be made in key and major towns in the country by giving due emphasis to fair distribution among various Regional States primary targets being Adama, Awassa, Bahirdar, Harar and Mekele; and two chartered cities namely, Addis Ababa and Diredawa in Ethiopia to make the research nationwide.
The output of the survey will be discussed in the study. Interviews Considering challenges of developing a primary research, this study will undertake a considerable number of formal and informal interviews with relevant individuals involved in key areas of international trade the primary targets being those involved in trade at the borders - exporters, importers, customs agents, transporters, etc. The main theme will be to acquire sufficient data about the problems that vital stake holders faced, due to the slow progress in alleviating trade facilitation needs in the country.
In particular, interviews with the relevant stakeholders will be applied in the sections: customs valuation regulations and practices issues of administration of customs fees and charges and issues of application of origin certification etc 5.

Scope and Delimitation of the Study First, although the attempt in this study is broad enough to include capacity and infrastructure issues concerning trade facilitation, it should be noted that this study will review aspects in this regard if and only if it is necessary to exemplify the concerns and recommendations in the work. Second, the aim of this thesis is to study the harmonization and simplification of custom and other border formalities in practice and the relevant multilateral and regional economic agreements, in particular the WTO and COMESA.
In the mean time, while trade facilitation harmonizes the administrative and logistical procedures of international trade it should not be mistaken for a study with regard to technical barriers and standards or in WTO terms to the TBT and SPS Agreements. Reference to this issue in this study will be made only with regard to transparency. Disposition At the outset the thesis will have the following issues to consider. The Relevant scope will be later determined after discussion with the respective advisor and the time and resource limitations.
