Application of import/export permits more secure with Trade Net 2.0

The application of export and import permits online via Myanmar Trade Net 2.0 is secure and can help curb corruption, said the director-general at the Ministry of Commerce. All export and import permits issued by the Ministry of Commerce can be applied online and security systems are in place to protect the user and applicants, said U Min Min during a press conference on Trade Net 2.0.

“Trade Net 2.0 assists paperless trade – the digital trade. It partly assists in implementing our e-government system. Data can be securely shared between government agencies and information leakage will not occur,” he said, adding that import and export permits can be applied anywhere at any time, as long as internet service can be accessed.

“There is no contact between business people and departments at all. We have also planned to improve the security (of the system). In the banking sector, even if the end user’s account is breached, the culprit will not be able to carry out (transactions) without a One Time Passcode,” said deputy director U Myo Khaing Win.

The system however does not allow for the application of special permits. These will still have to be applied for in person. There are currently 3,430 people registered with Myanmar Trade Net 2.0. A total of 756 cards related to export and import and 1,617 import permits have been processed with the online system. – Translated
