18-20 June 2019, Nassau, Bahamas
At the invitation of the WCO Secretariat, from 18-20 June 2019, Dr. Tong hua, Program Manager of the ROCB A/P, with other experts from the WCO worked together with their counterparts in the Bahamas Customs and Excise Department (BCED) to review the administration’s Human Resource Management (HRM) and training approaches at the BCED Headquarter in Nassau, Bahamas. The working groups comprised members of the BCED’s HR and Training Units, as well as representative from the Ministry of Public Service of Bahamas. The objective of this mission is to follow up of the People Development Plan focused on training initiatives.
Using the methodologies and frameworks drawn from the WCO Framework of Principles and Practices on Customs Professionalism (FPPCP), Dr. Tong hua led the sessions on adult learning principles, blended learning approach and training evaluation tools. He underlined main findings and good practices of “the ROCB A/P Study on the Use of e-learning Modules for the Customs Professionalism and Human Resource Development” as well as prompted the ROCB A/P’s training evaluation instruments package. A draft report on the BCED’s People Development Plan 2019-2020, as the main outcome of this mission, will be summitted to the Comptroller of the BCED for final approval.
This mission was under the WCO-Bahamas Training Programme, which was delivered as part of a wider program of training support to BCED, linked to the WCO-Mercator Programme aiming to help Bahamas align with the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) and under the umbrella of the IADB (Inter-American Development Bank)’s Bahamas Trade Sector Support Program.
