Partner organizations agreed to support research opportunities, including joint research projects, and short-term placement of university faculty members at PSW organization and vice versa for better appreciation of the industrial and education environment.

The Pakistan Single Window initiative led by Pakistan Customs aims at reducing the time and cost of doing business by digitalizing Pakistan’s cross border trade and eliminating paper based manual processes. PSW aims to provide an integrated electronic platform that allows parties involved in international trade and transport to lodge standardized information and documents with a single-entry point to fulfill all import, export, and transit regulatory requirements.
