12 diciembre 2018

The World Customs Organization (WCO), with the financial support of WCO/CCF-Reserves, in collaboration with the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP), organized a workshop held from November 19 to 23, 2018, in the City of Lisbon (Portugal), to finalize the development of the Strategic Plan for the Conference of CPLP Customs Directors General, with the participation of representatives from Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe and  Timor Leste.

In highly interactive sessions, the team worked in detail on the revision and validation of the document of the CPLP Customs Strategic Plan, project list and respective Capacity Building initiatives. The workshop was decisive to create the guidelines that will comprise the Business Case with insights on resource mobilization, taking in account the expected sponsorship by possible donor/international community to support the delivery of the activities detailed in the Strategic Plan.

During the closing remarks Ms. Ana Paula Raposo, Deputy Director General for the Customs Procedures Department, Portuguese Tax and Customs Administration, emphasized the priority and commitment of the CPLP Customs to materialize the Strategic Plan and acknowledge WCO support in this great achievement for the CPLP Customs.

The WCO remains committed to providing adapted support to its Members, and congratulates the CPLP Customs administrations for this accomplishment, since this document will facilitate and guide the discussion at national and international fora for its ongoing modernization efforts.
