Single Window, Corridors and Integrated Borders

September 27, 2011 — Leave a comment

Besides all the recent modernisation developments here at home, and abroad, there is both renewed interest and pressure on sovereign governments to push for efficiencies and cost savings relating to regional transport corridors. A case in point is the ambitious initiative involving various states of the East African Community. The Heads of State of the Tripartite (COMESA, EAC and SADC) requested an action plan to improve the efficiency of these corridors to facilitate trade, lower costs for businesses, advance regional integration, and improve the economic livelihoods of all East Africans. The Corridor Diagnostic Study is the technical foundation for that plan. See also the East African Corridors website which provides a comprehensive insight into this regional initiative.
