International trade is an essential driver for economic prosperity. Securing the global trading system requires the collaboration between different parties that works best in the spirit of partnership. One of the best examples of this partnership can be found between the Customs and Private Sector under the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) Programme which is being successfully implemented worldwide. The AEO Programme enhances the security and facilitation of the international supply chain and promotes certainty and predictability in an increasingly competitive global environment. This conference will focus on the need to include other border agencies and assist small to medium size enterprises to become part of this global drive to prosperity.

The first day of the conference will be marked by keynote speakers, while the second day will offer a variety of workshops to choose from and the third day will include moderated discussions.

Why attend:

LEARN about the successes and challenges of Customs administrations, other border agencies and private sector, in particular small to medium size enterprises, in their efforts to implement an AEO programme, focusing on enhancing cooperation and partnership between Customs, the private sector and the other key stakeholders, fostering global public/private dialogue. Learn how Customs and other border agencies are coordinating efforts to facilitate trade. Hear from Small to Medium Size Enterprises as they share experiences on this important topic.

The second day will include a variety of workshops that allow all participants to select topics of particular interest to them such as Single Window, Revised Kyoto Convention, Risk Management, an actual live demonstration of a 7 Point Container inspection, etc. There is something for everyone.
