On February 26, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed a grant agreement with the Royal Government of Cambodia inPhnom Penh to provide grant aid of up to 1.340 billion yen for the Project for Port EDI for Port Modernization.
Under this project, a computerized system will be constructed to provide a port electronic data interchange (EDI) at Sihanoukville Port and Phnom Penh Port in order to streamline import and export procedures, including applications and notifications at vessel arrival and departure. It is expected that the project will streamline the import and export procedures of Cambodia while bringing them into line with international standards, and modernize port administration.
The introduction of the Port EDI system is also expected to contribute to the creation of a “Single Window” in Cambodia as part of the ASEAN Single Window framework for streamlining import and export procedures at ports.
