Integrity Development workshop in Santo Domingo

22 April 2013

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

18-22 March 2013

A WCO mission went to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from 18 to 22 March 2013 to conduct an Integrity Development Workshop. Thirty-two officers from various Customs departments took part in this event held at the Juan Bosch Regional Training Centre.

The Workshop objective was to present the WCO integrity tools and to discuss integrity and corruption through a case study analysis. A self-assessment exercise based on the Integrity Development Guide led to the drafting of an Action Plan, structured around the 10 elements of the Revised Arusha Declaration, which was produced through the efforts of participants who were all heavily involved in this task.

The Integrity Action Plan was submitted to the Director General of Customs.
