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


 

6-9 June 2016 in Faridabad, India

 

    The ROCB A/P and the ADB with support from the WCO Secretariat conducted the Final National Expert Mission on Customs Valuation for the India Customs under the WCO-ADB Multi-year Assistance for the SASEC Countries (Multi-year Project) from 6 - 9 June 2016 in Faridabad, India, and successfully completed the 3-year Multi-year Project.  Mr. Takayuki MIYOSHI, Program Manager for South Asia of the ROCB A/P, took part in this Final Mission as a lead resource and facilitator and worked with 32 India Customs colleagues, including 4 Project Core Members (PCMs), and an expert from Sri Lanka.

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 its anticipated deliverable under the project considering the country’s situation and needs.  India Customs decided to develop a model standardized training module (course) and training materials to accomplish the above-mentioned purpose.

On the day 1st to 3rd of the 4-day Mission, the PCMs and the experts organized a training session on Customs Valuation control to their Customs colleagues by using the newly developed training materials, and on the final day, they reviewed the Multi-year Project and discussed future collaboration.

With this mission to India, the entire Multi-year Project for SASEC Countries has been completed.  All planned activities under the Multi-year Project were duly carried out and all expected objectives were accomplished.
