Lao PDR - Preparation of a national single window : a blueprint for implementation (英语)

The principle long term development objective of implementing an effective, sustainable, and cost effective national single window (NSW) system and supporting environment is to make trade faster, simpler, and lower cost for traders. The successful implementation of a NSW should simplify import and export requirements for traders, reduce transaction costs, and improve data integrity. It should also reduce the opportunities for rent seeking, increase transparency and predictability, and facilitate the adoption of modern risk based approaches across government agencies that have border management responsibilities. Once implemented, it is envisaged that the Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR) NSW will establish a single point for electronic submission in order to facilitate the lodging of standardized information to fulfill all the regulatory requirements for imports, exports, and transits. This blueprint for implementation is the result of a World Bank-funded assignment to provide technical assistance for the preparation of a Lao PDR NSW and it has been assembled to offer support and direction to the Government of Lao PDR (GOL) as it proceeds towards implementation of itsNSW. The LNSW blueprint for implementation consists of an executive summary, a general narrative providing an introduction, summarized details of the technical team's findings and final conclusions for the different task clusters undertaken under the technical assistance assignment. Details are also provided of key questions that the GOL may need to address in order to help focus strategic direction for implementation of a NSW in Lao PDR.
