Why this project?

Traders in the East African Community (EAC) currently spend numerous days visiting multiple government agencies in various locations to obtain regulatory information permits, trade licenses and clearance certificates to complete import and export processes. This results in huge costs and time loss for the traders. To counter these inefficiencies in trade facilitation, governments in the EAC have set up national Electronic Single Windows with revenue and port authorities, cross-border trade certification agencies and the private sector.

What:

The Single Window Information for Trade is a trade facilitation concept which allows cross-border traders to access apply for and submit regulatory documents at a single location.

How:

TMA is providing financial support to RRA and other government agencies to implement the Rwanda Electronic Single Window
