Das says the assistance mainly focuses on the ASYCUDA system improvements in allowing the five Customs administration to better their Revenue collection, Facilitation of Trade and Travel and improve their Risk Assessment and Compliance Auditing.
FRCS has sought ASMP offices support in 2018 for the next stage of improvements, which is the development and full automation of all the Customs manual process.
