According to the bank website, the proposed project will establish a National Single Window (NSW) in Maldives. The NSW will provide an efficient environment for streamlined international trade procedures between private sector stakeholders and border control agencies. The NSW will leverage information and communication technology to provide online access to carry out border control procedures. This will enable traders and other service providers to exchange electronic forms and documents, thereby eliminating the need for physical displacement. In addition, automated processing across stakeholder systems will be enabled by the exchange of harmonized data. The NSW environment will thus provide for a much more efficient set of standardized and transparent international trade procedures, enhanced border control, and more readily available data on trade flows.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
