The conference in summary

Theme: “Customs and Trade Promoting Opportunities to Gain Competitive Advantages in International Trade”


14 – 16 April 2010


Westin Camino Real Hotel, Guatemala City, Guatemala


This Conference will mark the success of several administrations in their efforts to implement an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) programme, part of the second pillar of the WCO Framework of Standards.

The event focuses primarily on the private sector and will see representation from the Americas and other major markets. The second day will include a variety of workshops that allow all participants to select topics of particular interest to them.
The WCO realizes this is an excellent opportunity to meet with other administrations and will provide either a small conference room for bilateral discussions or a larger conference room for several administrations to meet.
