The WCO Secretariat, following an extensive review of the global market for customs development and the development tools provided has established a comprehensive strategy for the sustainable ongoing development of Customs and Border Management Services to meet the demands of Member Governments for the 21st century.
The WCO Secretariat has devoted a great deal of attention to improving the quality, relevance and availability of its capacity building activities which led to the development of the WCO Capacity Building Strategy. A core aspect of this Strategy involves the “Regional” approach, the objective of which is to promote the sharing among neighbouring countries of ideas and actions to achieve the same regional objectives, namely, economic growth and social development.
An encouraging development for implementation of SAFE Framework of Standards is the high level of donor support for the programme which has ensured that an aggressive approach can be taken to the delivery of the Columbus programme.
