Description The TA will support the processing of the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation National Single Window (NSW) project. The NSW project aims to provide an efficient environment for streamlined international trade procedures between private sector stakeholders and border control agencies.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Trade processes in the country are constrained by a number of procedural and organizational bottlenecks, which substantially hamper the efficient flow of trade transactions. The establishment of NSW system aims to address the key bottlenecks to international trade procedures at both the Male seaport and airport. It will support coordinated border management as the NSW system integrates the control requirements of government agencies from the initial application for permits through the processes of coordinated inspection and integrated release. This will thus result in reduction in time and cost of international trade.
