Philippines, Thailand ebXML, Web Service Pilot project tests Single Window for faster trade

Thailand has kicked off collaboration with the Philippines to launch a data-exchange pilot project under the Asean Single Window (ASW) initiative. The Customs departments of Thailand and the Philippines have tested the exchange of CEPT Form D and export declaration information through the national single windows of the two countries.

The Common Effective Preferential Tariff Scheme (CEPT) is a cooperative arrangement among Asean countries that aims to reduce intra-regional tariffs and remove non-tariff barriers.
