The WCO, in cooperation with the ROCB A/P and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) held a joint workshop on Air Cargo Security and Facilitation at the ICAO Regional Office in Bangkok on 28-30 April 2015, with the financial support of CCF Japan.
The Workshop brought together a total of 60 participants from Customs and Aviation Security authorities from 28 States, as well as representatives from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Asian-Pacific Postal Union (APPU).
During the workshop, the participants were provided an overview of the international air cargo security supply chain and its governing rules and standards. They also shared their respective national practices and discussed how ICAO and WCO Members could work together to implement the various security and facilitation measures.
Participants of the workshop welcomed this opportunity to enhance cooperation between the Customs and its stakeholders to achieve mutual objectives on the air cargo security and facilitation. Based on feedback from the participants, ICAO and the WCO will further develop the program to expand future workshops in other regions.
