21 – 22 April 2016 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Following a series of successful ACTS analysis meeting during which ASEAN Member States finalised the technical environment of the planned ACTS Pilot, ARISE ran a fruitful ACTS Pilot Strategy meeting for participating ASEAN Member States on 21 and 22 April 2016. The meeting took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and concentrated on the plans for the different phases of the ACTS Pilot. The first phase will consist of electronic site tests in July 2016 linking the three ACTS Pilot countries, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand to each other and to the ACTS Central Services. This phase will be followed by a parallel run of trucks between the Pilot countries in August and September 2016, ending with live trucks running in October and November 2016. The meeting also stressed the importance of good inter-agency co-operation, notably in the issuance of ASEAN goods vehicle cross border permits.
