Development of single window in a country is inherently difficult. Many factors need to be taken into full consideration when a national single window system is developed. The rapid development of technology brings not only new solutions but also new challenges in terms of dealing with the legacy of the old system.

Development of a national single window must be underpinned by the institutional setting of a country. As national single window in many countries is championed by customs, questions often remain on how other agencies should be involved in developing and utilizing the national single window.

Therefore, development and improvement of national single window is similar to aiming at a moving target, which is never easy. Persistence and patience are crucial for all parties and agencies in the journey of developing a single window.

In this context, this event aims to take stock of developing Philippines National Single Window (PNSW) and share experiences in developing the single windows in a few selected countries. This event further aims to discuss the way forward for Philippines to further develop its PNSW, as well as challenges and solutions.

While development of PNSW is important, acceding to the Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific, a UN treaty that ESCAP serves as the secretariat, indicates that Philippines is ambitious to strengthen its work on trade facilitation with other countries. This event will also discuss opportunities for Philippines to participate in cross-border paperless trade.

This event is Jointly organized by the Philippine Bureau of Customs and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific.
