At the invitation of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU), the Secretary General of the WCO, Dr. Kunio Mikuriya, spoke at the EU Working Party on Customs Union on 25 January 2022 to present the draft WCO Strategic Plan 2022-2025 and the Organization’s Data Strategy in support of its theme for this year. 

EU Members expressed their appreciation for the WCO’s adaptability in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and for the inclusive approach adopted by the Organization through its Strategic Plan that fully incorporates Members’ comments put forward during the regional consultation process and the December 2021 Policy Commission Session. They also expressed support for the Data Strategy, which was identified as one of the main focus areas during the consultation process. 

Dr. Mikuriya thanked the EU for its support and encouraged constructive engagement in WCO activities by EU Members.
