Department of Finance

Ms Paola Alvarez, Assistant Secretary and Spokesperson

OpenGov is recognising the Department of Finance for its work in developing in the TradeNet platform.
The platform became operational by the end of 2017. TradeNet, is expected to minimise costs of doing business, shorten the processing time of import/export clearances, reduce the number of transactions and required documents to be submitted, and remove bureaucratic red-tape that has plagued businesses and citizens when dealing with the government.
Initially, 16 government agencies were connected online to TradeNet. It is expected to have a total of 66 government agencies on-board progressively over the course of the next two to three years. 20 Philippines government agencies are expected to go online under ASW platform between the first and second quarters of 2018.
The TradeNet Platform will serve as the country’s link to the ASEAN Single Window (ASW) gateway. The ASW is a regional initiative that aims to speed up cargo clearances and promote economic integration by enabling the electronic exchange of border documents among the organization’s 10 member-states. Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand are already using the ASW to exchange information on customs clearances.
