More seamless customs procedures for ASEAN countries: Lim Hng Kiang

Businesses can look forward to more seamless customs procedures as part of deeper economic integration between Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member countries, said Minister for Trade and Industry Lim Hng Kiang on Monday (Sep 8).

Speaking at the ASEAN Business Club Forum 2014, Mr Lim highlighted that almost all goods already move across borders in the region without tariffs. With such internal processes in place, ASEAN is now ready to take the next step and look to eliminate non-tariff trade barriers between its member countries.

Some of the initiatives include a self-certification system, which will allow exporters to certify export documents on their own, and an initiative called the ASEAN Single Window.

The ASEAN Single Window seeks to link the 10 ASEAN countries electronically, which would help businesses reduce cost, and enjoy simpler and faster custom clearance of goods in ASEAN.
