WCO News Magazine October 2017


The WCO has published the 84th edition of WCO News, the Organization’s flagship magazine aimed at the Customs community, which provides a selection of informative articles that touch the international Customs and trade landscape.

This edition features a special dossier on the annual WCO Council sessions, with reflections on the six areas of work identified by WCO Members as a priority, as well as articles on the work accomplished by the Secretariat from July 2016 to June 2017.

In the “focus” section, the spotlight falls on transit, with articles on the WCO Global Transit Conference held in July 2017, the electronic transit system in Central America, how operators are being mobilized to break down non-tariff barriers in West Africa, and why more integration is needed in the European Union to combat transit fraud.

Other highlights include articles on what is a “Top Executive Retreat,” the fight against the illicit trade in cigarettes in the Dominican Republic, cross-border e-commerce policy in China, Customs reform in the Central African Republic and the challenges related to the management of its territory, 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.
