After the direction of the medicine and the pharmacy, still in the project of the AfDB, GAINDE 2000 continues its technical support in the matter of dematerialization in favor of the administration services. It is within this context, with the signature of a agreement, that he proceeded to the delivery of batches of tablets to the Direction of Plant Protection during a ceremony. “This meeting is in line with our desire to continue to dematerialize our procedures,” says the Plant Protection Director. He reminds that since 2005, the DPV (Direction of Plant Protection) is in the Orbus system, but only for the office of the autonomous port of Dakar.
According to him, there were some shortcomings because the platform was not fully used by the actors concerned. We hope to have a generalization of its use across all control posts. Our wish was to be able to insert ourselves into this system. We cannot thank GAINDE 2000 for having removed a charge from us. We were wasting a lot of time signing some very large documents. The Direction of Plant Protection reiterates its commitment to progress in this process of dematerialization,” said the director.
In this same track, the Managing Director of GAINDE 2000, Ibrahima Nour Eddine Diagne, magnified this partnership which, and reminds that it dates back several years. We are in a phase of the project that corresponds to a modernization. The Orbus single window has existed in Senegal since 2004. We propose just one step forward in the modernization process with the notion of mobility. GAINDE 2000 is firmly part of a partnership to enable the Direction of Plant Protection to further modernize its procedures,” said Mr. Diagne. He informed the members of the staff of the Direction of Plant Protection that the total changeover will depend only on their will. If management is ready, it will be possible to require any economic operator (exporter or importer) of products to use electronic means. “The rest will be up to the Direction of Plant Protection. « We are available to support him on the organizational and technical level», insisted the Deputy Head of GAINDE 2000. Remining that there is not only the Direction of Plant Protection certificate that allows the operators to dispose of the products. It’s also needs other types of authorizations.
For Abdoulaye Ndiaye, Head of the Division of Phytosanitary Legislation and Quarantine of Plants of the Direction of Plant Protection, dematerialization is a reality and there is no longer a choice. “We need to move towards this innovation.
As explained so well by the Managing Director of GAINDE 2000, upstream, if we manage to solve all the problems of connection and the availability of certain equipment, I think we will be able to switch by 2021,” said Mr. Ndiaye.
