20 January 2015, Bangkok, Thailand


Mr. Lin Hongliang, Director of the Asian-Pacific Postal Union (APPU), and Mr. Anucha Soonglertsongpha, Course Director of the APPU, visited the ROCB A/P for the New Year’s greeting and renewal of collaboration with Customs in the Asia/Pacific region.  Mr. Kazunari Igarashi, Head of the ROCB A/P and other colleagues gave them a warm welcome. On this occasion, Mr. Igarashi gave a brief on the progress of the work undertaken by the WCO and its partner organization, including draft text on the Pre-loading Advance Cargo Information, which is to be incorporated in the SAFE FoS 2015, as the postal operator would be required to submit pertinent data for security screening purpose. He also explained the WCO-ICAO Joint Training Module and draft program for the forth-coming Regional Workshop on Air Cargo Security and Facilitation to be held in the end of April 2015, in which the APPU will be invited to take part as an observer. Mr. Lin and Mr. Igarashi shared the view that Customs and Postal operators needed to deepen mutual understanding on the respective important roles in securing air cargo supply chain and the need for mutual assistance in capacity building to support full implementation of the standards set forth in the SAFE FoS in the A/P region.
