The WCO has published a leaflet for the 2015 WCO Picard Conference which will be held from 8 to 10 September 2015 in Baku, Azerbaijan. The leaflet can be accessed here.
The Conference will be hosted by the State Customs Committee of Azerbaijan. Financial support for the Conference is being provided by the State Customs Committee of Azerbaijan and the Korea Customs Service.
The Picard Conference Call for Papers, which was issued in January 2015, cordially invites submission of research papers on Customs or, more globally, the regulation, dynamics, and practices of the international trade of goods. Conference topics will include, but are not necessarily limited to, the connection between global value chains and Customs procedures; taxation and other revenue matters; and smuggling. Authors have until 1 June 2015 to submit their papers for possible selection by the Scientific Board for WCO.
