The government is planning to launch a National Trade Portal by the end of this year, aimed at boosting transparency in policies and practices affecting the movement of goods across borders, according to an official media report.
The move was prompted by the Myanmar Ministry of Commerce at a public event on Myanmar’s first WTO trade policy review in Yangon, said the Global New Light of Myanmar.
In partnership with USAID, the website will feature all trade-related information beginning from the MFN rate to tariff and non-tariff measures related to import and export of commodities.
Upon completion, the National Trade Policy will link to the country’s National Single Window that will link to the ASEAN Single Window.
Officials said the trade facilitation portal will be a single authoritative source of all laws, regulations, and procedures for traders and government agencies involved in the import and export of goods.
