On 14th and 15th October in Venice, at the end of the world-class seminar organized by the Customs and Monopoly Office and by the European Commission as part of the semester of Italian Presidency of the Council of the Union, all participating Countries agreed on the need to promptly proceed towards the building of integrated systems between the public administrations involved in international trade, in order to streamline, curb costs and improve effectiveness.
In addition to the Customs Office, the Venice Port Authority, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Harbourmaster's Office-Coast Guard also attended.
The seminar gave useful indications to the Countries which yet have to activate the one-stop shop, drawing attention on the need to review the general setting of the e-Customs Agenda in favour of a diffused and complete digitalization of the clearance process and on the basis of the need to support businesses, including small and medium enterprises which represent the supporting structure of many European economies.
