Intelligent exchange – trade facilitation in practice 6th September, Marrakesh, Morocco - Summary and Presentations
Trade Facilitation focuses on how administrations in different countries can reduce the burden to trade across borders but, in order to do that, the trade needs to be fully engaged in the process. Port Community Systems (PCS) are critical to this and provide the missing link by joining both administrative and operational processes through the electronic exchange of information, thus providing seamless logistics.
This event was organised to cover core elements of PCS and Single Window operations, provide examples of good practice and identify a few of the challenges that trade is currently facing.
It was hosted by IPCSA Member PORTNET, Morocco and was part of the 5th International Single Window Conference and Exhibition held in Marrakesh, Morocco between 5th and 7th September 2016.
