Trade Single Window
The Commerce and Economic Development Bureau is developing a Trade Single Window to provide a one-stop electronic platform for the trading community to lodge over 50 business-to-government trade documents for trade declaration and customs clearance purposes. Phase 1 of the Trade Single Window was launched in December 2018 and now covers 14 types of trade documents. The Legislative Council has approved the funding for implementing Phase 2, which will extend coverage to another 28 types of trade documents from 2023 by batches. Documents covered by the first two phases are mainly for specific controlled products. Phase 3 will cover Import and Export Declaration, Advance Cargo Information, and Cargo Report for all cargoes.
