The Final National Expert Mission on Customs Valuation for Sri Lanka Customs under the WCO-ADB Multi-year Assistance for SASEC Countries  


 15 February 2016, Colombo, Sri Lanka

 

The ROCB A/P and the ADB with support from the WCO Secretariat conducted the Final National Expert Mission on Customs Valuation for the Sri Lanka Customs under the WCO-ADB Multi-year Assistance for the SASEC Countries (Multi-year Project) from 15 to 19 February 2016 in Colombo, Sri Lanka and successfully completed the Multi-year Project.  3 Project Core Members (PCMs) and 3 Project Supporting Members (PSMs) of the Sri Lanka Customs and experts from the Maldives Customs Service and the ROCB A/P joined the activity.

This Multi-year Project was designed to support SASEC Counties’ efforts to realize the proper management of Customs Valuation control ideally through Post Clearance Audit (PCA) for ensuring both effective trade facilitation and proper collection of national revenue.  Each participating country has determined own needs and an anticipated deliverable under the Multi-year Project, namely the development of the training module for the Sri Lanka Customs, to accomplish the above-mentioned purpose.

During the 5-day activity, the PCMs, the PSMs and the experts; (i) finalized the training module, (ii) organized a 3-day National Workshop on Customs Valuation and its control for 31 Sri Lanka Custom officers with the newly developed training module and (iii) reviewed the Multi-year Project and discussed future collaboration.  The PCMs and the PSMs are going to deliver further training events with the training module to their Customs colleagues and brokers community.
