The workshop raised awareness of and trained managerial-level stakeholders from member countries of Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) and South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) on implementing a single window.

Participants, who are responsible for making policies and implementing programs for paper trade and a single window, learned

  • from the practices of Pan-Asian eCommerce Alliance (PAA) on how to formulate a program for cross-border electronic data exchange,
  • essential legal aspects in enabling single window and paperless trade environment, and
  • from actual paperless operation of single window–related agencies through site visits.

The sites visited were UiWang Inland Container Depot; Jungbu Regional Office of the Animal, Plant and Fisheries Quarantine and Inspection Agency; and Incheon Customs.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) co-sponsored the workshop.
