10 June 2019, Bangkok, Thailand
At the invitation of the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA), Dr. Tong Hua of the ROCB A/P participated in and contributed to the 13th FIATA Region Asia/Pacific (RAP) Field Meeting held on 10 June 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand, to which about 60 representatives from FIATA members attended.
Dr. Tong made a presentation on the most current work progress of the comprehensive review of the Revised Kyoto Convention (RKC). He highlighted that in order for the RKC to remain a living strategic document for modern Customs procedures in the 21st Century, the comprehensive review would require an overall needs analysis to accommodate updated or new concepts contained in the WCO tools as well as the Member administrations’ best practices. He underlined the importance of stakeholders’ engagement, which includes the FIATA as a partner of the WCO, to further develop their proposals for the success of the comprehensive review. President of the FIATA complimented the ROCB A/P’s contribution to update their members with the review of the WCO’s flagship instrument. There was a heated Q&A session after Dr. Tong’s presentation.
