ROCB A/P Head Visits RTC Hong Kong


 

 

4 March 2015, Hong Kong, China


Mr. Kazunari Igarashi, Head of the ROCB A/P, paid a courtesy visit to the Regional Training Center (RTC) in Hong Kong China on 4 March 2015 and saw Mr. C K Fan, Head of the RTC Hong Kong China, and his colleagues and exchanged candid views on the way to make regional training programs more effective and result-oriented. In the course of the exchange, Mr. Igarashi expressed his appreciation to the RTC Hong Kong China’s contribution to the regional training activities, including their generous hosting of the recent WCO Regional Workshop on Intelligence Management conducted in February 2015, and wished to further strengthen collaboration with the RTC Hong Kong China.

After an introductory presentation on the RTC Hong Kong China, Mr. Igarashi was escorted to a tour of the Customs exhibition hall and a range of training facilities, including vessel search module, mock court, house search simulator, and video interview training room. Mr. Fan and Mr. Igarashi discussed the possibility to use these practical training modules for the future regional training programs.  

In the wake of the RTC Heads Meeting held in November 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand, the RTC Hong Kong China has kindly provided more detailed information in writing about these special and unique training facilities to share among the regional Member Customs administrations for the reference and later with the other WCO regions as well.  The compilation of these written contributions will be published in due course.
