Latest edition of WCO News now available

22 June 2020

The WCO has published the 92nd 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.

For the dossier of this edition, we invited various administrations and organizations to provide an overview of how they responded to the COVID-19 crisis and to highlight any lessons learned. We also discuss the future of Customs and a specific area of enforcement that may not be very well known, namely the trade in wild plant resources.

The “Panorama” section addresses various topics such as data analysis, digitalization, automated data exchange, and Customs-to-Customs collaboration. 

The “Focus” section presents the latest developments in three areas: the review of the Revised Kyoto Convention, guidance on free zones, and access to domain name information.

It has been our great pleasure to produce another edition of WCO News and we trust that you will enjoy reading this issue, whether it be the paper version or the new mobile-friendly digital one.
