Dear Members and Friends

As part of the Chamber’s support for the collaborative development of the National Trade Platform (NTP), it is a pleasure to bring you the following progress report from the NTP project team.

Have a great week ahead.

Warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive

Collaborating with industry partners to build the National Trade Platform

Starting in June 2016, the National Trade Platform (NTP) project team has worked with over 250 individuals from more than 130 companies across the trade and logistics community to co-design the NTP to address industry challenges.

This was carried out through a series of industry interviews, ideation workshops – during which participants generated and shared creative solutions to challenges – and briefings.

The team gathered traders’ views on the planned features of the NTP, identified opportunities for new platform services and learnt about the concerns of the trade and logistics community. Through these interactions, the NTP team incorporated features into the platform that address some of the issues raised, such as reducing duplication of paperwork and having a secure data repository.

The NTP is designed to be a one-stop trade information management platform that will facilitate and enable electronic data sharing among businesses and the Government. It will replace the current TradeNet and TradeXchange.

For more information on the NTP, including news and events, visit the NTP microsite.
