A new regional training centre for World Customs Organisation will soon be established in Fiji.
This is after Fiji’s representative to the European Union Peceli Vocea signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Secretary General of the WCO Kunio Mikuriya.
Vocea signed the MOU on behalf of FRCA.
The training centre will be used as a regional training institution for customs related events and provide technical assistance for meetings in the Pacific region.
The WCO Council acknowledged the enormous challenges facing Customs administrations due to increasing volumes of trade, globalisation of trade, and regional integration.
The center is expected to be up and running next month.
