Sammanfattning: As trade liberalisation has become somewhat of a trend in the global trade environment, developing countries suffer from losses in government revenue due to continuously lowering of tariff rates. Trade facilitation could be an effective way of boosting trade, without having to reduce tariffs which could further lead to an increase in tariff revenue. This paper investigates the likely effects of trade facilitation on Senegal´s tariff revenue and simulates the increase in revenue given different levels of trade facilitation. The empirical analysis is conducted using a gravity model, which is estimated using the fixed effect Poisson Pseudo-Maximum-Likelihood (PPML) method. The results indicate that trade facilitation could lead to an increase in Senegal´s government revenue from tariffs. Reducing the days required for import by half would likely lead to an increase in Senegal´s tariff revenue by 32 %.
