UN/CEFACT Conference on "Single Window: sharing implementation experiences and best practices"

29 October 2019

IMO, Albert Embankment, London, UK

Background
Single Window is a key factor of economic growth and trade facilitation within an economy; however, the task is large! Creating a single entry point for all import, export and transit related regulatory processes, ensuring that all relevant government agencies are involved, creating a clear and streamlined data model for all procedures… Implementation can take many years, but should bring some promising benefits both to the trading community and to government agencies – not to mention overall economic benefits for the country.

Implementation of a Single Window has been proposed through the World Trade Organization as one of the key elements to implement within its Trade Facilitation Agreement. Countries all over the world have either implemented, in the process of implementing or studying future implementation. Of course the context may be different depending on national laws and the agencies involved; but everyone is aiming towards a same objective and could benefit from regular exchange on the subject and sharing of best practices.

Objective
This Conference aims to bring together all those concerned with Single Window implementation. It will be set up to allow a number of countries to demonstrate their Single Window solutions, to explain the challenges faces and the success stories. Sufficient time will be allotted to allow exchanges between participants and implementors in order to explore the best practices.

Come share your experiences with your Single Window implementation, or come to hear about the experiences of your peers.

Target Audience
Single Window implementors, cross-border government agencies, international trading community.
