June 28, 2015 – Thailand is preparing for the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community towards the end of this year. The prime minister and head of the National Council for Peace and Order has entrusted the Customs Department, the Ministry of Finance, to establish the National Single Window, an electronic system that expedites a secured, safe and efficient electronic exchange of trade-related documents.
Currently, a total of 29 authorities are connected through the NSW, including the Customs Department, the Department of Foreign Trade, the Department of Industrial Works, the Department of Land Transport, the Port Authority of Thailand, the Internal Trade Department, the Thai Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade of Thailand. In addition, seven other departments are currently in the process of connecting to the NSW, such as the Department of Primary Industries and mines, the Federation of Thai Industries and the Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited.
Meanwhile, ASEAN countries are working towards the ASEAN Single Window linking each member country’s NSW to facilitate a fast and seamless flow of information in one single market. The ASW will facilitate international trade and movements of goods by connecting the government systems with those of business operators. The ASW is a cost-efficient system for the management of cross-border trade.
