Conférence internationale sur les guichets uniques au Maroc

Dominique Lebreton, MGI Audits, Projects and Marketing Director, will take part in the 5th International Single Window Conference, “Electronic single window for foreign trade: the requirement for an inclusive cooperation”, in Marrakech from 5 to 7 September 2016.

On Tuesday 6 September, MGI will speak on the topic of “Interconnection between single windows and other existing systems: opportunities and challenges.” It will discuss the connection between the French customs system and the AP+ Port Community System (PCS) and its successor Ci5, in the context of stronger policies for goods control.
Dominique Lebreton will talk about the advantages of PCS for 4th generation ports, characterised by their interconnected and networking approach to sharing data on goods and ships.

The short distance between Mediterranean ports means that their physical goods and administrative flow processes need to be reconsidered. Organisational, legal and technological levers could be implemented to facilitate interprofessional exchange, with the aim of improving logistics performance.
The use of a PCS by a port community promotes the emergence of “smart ports” and provides door-to-door goods traceability. It facilitates the management of administrative, logistics, customs and financial processes and meets the demand of supply chain players to improve response times.

This conference has been organised as part of a drive to improve the business climate in favour of the international business ecosystem. The single electronic window plays a key role in facilitating trade as it reduces costs and goods transit times in ports.
