Bureau Veritas to Operate Single Window in Congo
The Democratic Republic of Congo has awarded the consortium Bureau Veritas BIVAC B.V. / Soget, the concession to set up and operate the Single Window for facilitating trade.
“This Single Window for international trade facilitation is a true modern platform that will simplify and secure business processes. It will help to create a new stakeholders trade community in the Democratic Republic of the Congo,” said Stéphane Gaudechon, Vice President, Government Services & International Trade, at Bureau Veritas, on Friday, October 3, 2014 at the official launching ceremony in Kinshasa.
This paperless platform will apply to all categories of goods whatever the mode of transport, both import and export, transit or transhipment. A billing system which monitors costs and taxes more efficiently will be at the heart of the new Single Window.
