Electronic System for Import and Export Procedures

A dedicated electronic processing desk for exports and imports in El Salvador (CIEX) is now connected to the local customs offices and those of Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua.

Monday, September 12, 2011

Costa Rica will be added soon.

Cornelio Deras, director of the Center for Import and Export Procedures (CIEX), noted that the technology they are using allows them to connect to any country with whom they have a free trade agreement or a commercial interest. Also planned is an interconnection with Mexican customs, as soon as readjusted FTA is signed.

"The goal is to make all importing procedures via Internet by 2013.

The creation of CIEX has been supported by the private sector due to the good experience that exporters had with CENTREX.

'When they told us they were going to make a dedicated desk using the same system but for imports, we said we were in complete agreement", said Francisco Bolaños, president of COEXPORT in an article in Laprensagrafica.com
