6-15 August 2018, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
The WCO Mercator Program Gap Analysis and Strategic Planning Support Mission for General Department of Customs and Excise of Cambodia (GDCE) was held on 6-15 August 2018 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia under the sponsorship of Japan Customs Cooperation Fund (CCF/Japan). Ms. Saori Nojima, Program Manager of the ROCB A/P, took part in the Mission as a Mercator Program Advisor (MPA) along with other experts.
The Mission aimed to conduct gap analysis regarding implementation of the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) and to support developing GDCE’s strategy namely Strategy and Work Program on Reform and Modernization (SWRM) for the period of 2019-2023.
Through a series of discussions and consultations with GDCE officers and representatives from the private sector, the WCO team identified recommended actions to be taken for GDCE’s effective implementation of the TFA. The WCO team also led discussions to support the GDCE to review the SWRM’s structure and key elements to be incorporated in their future strategy in a logical and holistic manner.
The Mercator Program was launched in 2014 to support the WCO Members to implement the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement and the MPAs are Members’ experts with the capacity to support administrations with an organizational gap analysis, planning and implementation of the TFA, typically at a strategic level.
