The Final National Expert Mission on Customs Valuationfor Bangladesh Customs

under the WCO-ADB Multi-year Assistance for SASEC Countries

 

The ROCB A/P and the ADB with support from the WCO Secretariat conducted the Final National Expert Mission on Customs Valuation for the Bangladesh Customs under the WCO-ADB Multi-year Assistance for the SASEC Countries (Multi-year Project) from 22 to 24 March 2016 in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and successfully completed the 3-year Multi-year Project.  9 Bangladesh Customs colleagues, including Project Core Members (PCMs) and Project Supporting Members (PSMs), and 2 experts from Sri Lanka and the ROCB A/P joined this Final Mission.

This Multi-year Project was designed to support SASEC Counties’ efforts in the proper management of Customs Valuation control, ideally through Post Clearance Audit (PCA), with a view to ensuring both trade facilitation and proper collection of national revenue.  Each participating country has determined own needs and anticipated deliverables under this Multi-year Project in accordance with the Action Plan to upgrade the current Customs Valuation database for effective Customs Valuation control in line with the WTO Valuation Agreement for the Bangladesh Customs to accomplish the above-mentioned purpose.

During the 3-day Mission, experts worked with the PCMs and the PSMs and finalized the Action Plan, reviewed the Multi-year Project, and discussed future collaboration.  The PCMs and the PSMs are expected to implement the Action Plan with the guidance from the Bangladesh Customs.
