ROCB A/P gives a lecture on the Customs community’s roles in trade facilitation and security

 

On 26 February 2016, at a meeting room of the Thai Customs Department (TCD), Mr. Kazunari Igarashi, Head of the ROCB A/P, and Mr. Takayuki Miyoshi, the Programs Manager of the same, gave a lecture on the Customs’ roles in trade facilitation and supply chain security, which has significant impact from the viewpoint of global economics.  Twenty-four studentsfrom the Economics Faculty of Nagasaki University (Japan), led by twoAssociate Professors,were visiting Thailand as part of their special programs to study international economics and trade in goods.  During their time in Thailand, they have visited a Japanese trading company and a warehouse operator, and observed dynamics in the international trade logisticsat the Laem Chabang Port.  Prior to the lecture by the ROCB A/P, a question and answer session was used to supplement and deepen their learnings from those field visits.  ROCB A/P was very pleased that students asked a range of relevant and critical questions, including prominent challenges being faced by the Customs administrations in their daily operations.

 

Mr. Igarashi made a presentation on the missions and relevant works undertaken by the WCO and the ROCB A/P, highlighting the significance of human resource development and institutional capacity building, towards further supporting sound growth of international trade.  ROCB A/P sincerely hopes that their visit to Thailand and lectures provided would further their interest in international affairs and be useful for their continued study at the University.

 

ROCB A/P is grateful for the TCD’s assistance and courtesy service provided for the students.
