The 11th Capacity Building Committee Meeting

4-6 March 2020, Brussels, Belgium

Under the theme “Manage Change Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow” the 11th Capacity Building Committee was convened on 4-6 March 2020 at the WCO Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium and approximately 180 delegates from Member administrations including non-Member administrations and other international organizations (UN, WTO) attended. Mr. Norikazu Kuramoto, Head of the ROCB A/P, and his colleagues also attended.

The meeting consisted of 2 parts. The day one was a joint session with the 12th Meeting of the Working Group on the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFAWG).  We could recognize the importance of TFA to establish the Reform and Modernization of Customs through Capacity Building activities.

The other Day2 and Day 3 were solely for the Capacity Building matters.  There were many discussions on every agenda especially on ‘Capacity Building Strategy and Operational Plan (2020-2022)’, ‘Small Island Economies (SIEs)’ and ‘Expert Management and Deployment’.  Mr. Kuramoto commented on the pivotal role of ROCB AP in assisting the SIEs issue.
