maritime-developing
In October 2020, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) contracted IOS Partners to provide consultancy services to produce a gap analysis for achieving full implementation of National Maritime Single Windows (MSW) as well as designing a Regional Maritime Single Window (RMSW) for the Caribbean. For this project, in particular, the primary activities to be undertaken by IOS Partners are to:
  • Conduct a gap analysis for achieving full implementation of a National MSW in the four beneficiary countries;
  • Design a Regional Maritime Single Window (RMSW) for the Caribbean;
  • Provide support to Jamaica to prepare for accession to the FAL Convention (Convention of Facilitation of International Maritime Traffic); and
  • Participate in a regional workshop to support the development of the Regional Maritime Single Window.
The project is expected to last for 9 months and will allow each country to prepare for the implementation of a National Maritime Single Window in order to comply with the relevant obligations under the FAL Convention and understand country specific requirements to participate in a Regional Maritime Single Window.
