On July 24, 2020, the Department of Finance headed by the NSW Chairman, Carlos Dominguez convened the 4th National Single Window Steering Committee Meeting (NSW SC). Whereas, the TradeNet Workplan and the Onboarding of the remaining TRGAs in the TradeNet Platform were furtherly discussed.
During the meeting, it was discussed that the onboarding of Trade Regulatory Government Agencies (TRGAs) faced difficulties during these pandemic. The Tradenet Ad Hoc PMO, suggested prioritizing the onboarding of TRGAs. Hence, the team can only onboard selected agencies instead, to avoid conflict onboarding other agencies.
Due to limited manpower, to address such difficulties NSW SC including Bureau of Customs (BoC) and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), the National Tobacco Administration (NTA) and Biodiversity Management Bureau (DENR-BMB) will prioritize the onboarding of the above in the Tradenet this Year.
