The submission of cargo manifest by clearing agents in Mozambique and the submission of customs declaration, through the SeW system, were the main points discussed at the workshop organized on the 1st October, in Komatiport, by the implementation team of the new customs clearance system of Mozambique Revenue Authority with the support of Maputo Corridor Logistic Initiative (MCLI).

The meeting was also attended by representatives of CTA - Confederation of Economic Associations of Mozambique, operators of various activity areas of foreign trade based in South Africa and Mozambique were informed about the activities carried out as part of the Single Electronic Window, training focused on users, dissemination of the system among the community of foreign trade operators, including the use and mastering of the new technologies of custom clearance of goods.
On the occasion, Felix Massangaie, team manager of the Single Electronic Window project in the Mozambique Revenue Authority, explained that "what brought us to Komatiport is the need to address to operators of foreign trade based here in South Africa, on the SeW system, since this country is one that currently has more trade with Mozambique, hence the need to explain to operators on the procedures used to facilitate commercial transactions between the two countries, thus reducing the clearance time".

On her turn, Barbara Mommen, representing MCLI, did not contain her satisfaction about the workshop, commenting that it was a unique opportunity that South African traders had to absorb a deeper understanding about the features of the Single Electronic Window.

"We are eager and hopeful about the SeW system and very amazed to see that Mozambique, in such a short period of time, is already implementing the system for rapid clearance of goods", said Barbara Mommen, adding that "dealing with the system that is currently in use by Customs, there’s a need to be armed with as much information as possible about its usage, such as this workshop".
