The International Maritime Organization (#IMO) with the aid of #Norway established a maritime "single window" in Antigua and Barbud and the source code for the system which will now be available to other countries who need it.
A maritime single window enables all information required by public authorities in connection with the arrival, stay, and departure of ships, people and cargo, to be submitted electronically via a single portal, without duplication. This type of system is recommended by IMO's Facilitation Convention, the treaty which aims to make trade by sea more efficient.

High Commissioner, H.E. Karen-Mae Hill said, “For small, vulnerable countries with limited resources, such as ours, it is quality and efficiency of service that will keep our business doors open and attractive. This maritime single window system will make cross-border trade simpler. Antigua and Barbuda stands ready to offer guidance to other IMO Member States that want to adopt a similar system.” 🇺🇳🇦🇬🇳🇴
