Twenty-nine participants from different units within the Customs Service of the Republic of Moldova recently attended a World Customs Organization (WCO) National Training Workshop aimed at exploring the many facets of Customs valuation.

The virtual Workshop was organized by the WCO, with the support of the Customs Cooperation Fund of Germany and ROCB Europe. It was held online from 14 to 18 March 2022 and was co-facilitated by a WCO-accredited expert trainer from Germany.

In her opening remarks, the Head of the Customs Valuation Unit of the Moldova Customs Service, Ms. Maria Birca, welcomed participants and expressed her hope that the Workshop would further enhance their knowledge and understanding of the principles of the World Trade Organization Customs Valuation Agreement.

The Workshop also comprised an introduction to the tools and instruments developed as part of the WCO Revenue Package. In addition, participants were given an opportunity to examine and discuss practical case studies and specific valuation issues encountered in their daily work.
