Today, 09th December 2020, the Steering Committee of the Project for development and implementation of the new National Single Window System (National Single Window - NSW) held a kick –off meeting via video conference. The meeting was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, Mr. Fatmir Bitiqi, together with the Director General of the Customs Administration, Mr. Gjoko Tanasoski. Directors of all the institutions responsible for cross-border movement of goods, as well as representatives of the business sector also joined them in the steering committee.

The Customs Administration of the Republic of North Macedonia is the leading agency and coordinator of the activities in this project, realized as a component within the Western Balkans Trade and Transport Facilitation Project (WBTTFP), financed by a loan from the World Bank. As part of the blueprint development activities, an analysis of the legislation, state of affairs and problems and development of the new NSW model, a new business process model, functional and technical architecture, as well as a detailed technical specification for system development and implementation are underway. The activities are carried out together with the consulting company KGH Customs Services.

The latest experiences of the most advanced countries in the world in this area such as Singapore, Sweden and Canada were presented at the meeting among other things. This is also expected to be the case with the Republic of North Macedonia, that is, to develop and implement a complete National single window meeting the needs and requirements of all state agencies responsible for the cross-border flow of goods and the business community hence providing for further facilitation and faster cross-border trade and compliance with regulations and standards applied in the EU member states. Through the development of appropriate interfaces, NSW is expected to properly integrate the national IT systems used in the Customs Administration and other state institutions, covering business processes from cross-border movement of goods.
