A very animated discussion took place. Also on the most effective answer to the question "What is a Maritime Single Window?" A suggestion for an answer was to describe a Maritime Single Window as a method:

  • to electronically receive the legally required information once regarding ships arriving and departing in their national seaport and
  •  to exchange this information to the various national competent authorities and other EU Member States.

The Summer provided an ideal opportunity to further connect and raise the glass to toast for a succesful co-operation.
