The WTO’s Trade facilitation Agreement (TFA), amongst other trade facilitation measures, encourages member states to develop their trade related National Single Window (NSW). Pakistan has committed to develop and launch its NSW by 2022, with Pakistan Customs having been designated as the ‘Lead Agency’ by the Prime Minister’s Office for the development of this important reform initiative. Accordingly, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has established a Program Management Office (PMO) in Customs Wing to coordinate and supervise this initiative.
A single window is a facility that allows parties involved in trade and transport to lodge standardized information and documents with a single-entry point to fulfill all import, export, and transit-related regulatory requirements. If information is electronic, then individual data elements should only be submitted once. The NSW will help reduce the time and cost of doing business in Pakistan and make trade related business processes more efficient, transparent and consistent.
Whereas the concept is primarily aimed at integrating and strengthening trade related government to government (G2G) and business to government (B2G) interactions, it also incorporates certain B2B transactions in particular those related to port operations, trucking, and warehousing. The NSW is a collaborative effort led by customs but involving multiple public and private sector stakeholders including regulatory authorities, traders, freight forwarders, banks, terminal operators, and transporters etc.
