The WCO has published the 82nd edition of WCO News, the Organization’s flagship magazine aimed at the global Customs community, which provides a selection of informative articles that touch the international Customs and trade landscape.

This edition features a special dossier on data analysis by Customs for more effective border management, and includes a number of country-specific experiences, particularly in the area of risk management and Customs modernization programmes.

It also puts a spotlight, in its focus section, on environmental issues, specifically the role of Customs and the WCO in combating wildlife crime, as well as in protecting the ozone layer and mitigating climate change.

Other highlights include articles on emerging technologies and how they can transform border management, facilitating trade against a backdrop of security threats, transforming trade processes to compete in the global economy, modernizing human resource management, and much more.

The magazine is published and distributed free of charge three times a year, in February, June and October, and is available online or in paper format.
