Mozambique Customs identify solutions with the private sector to fight corruption

03 noviembre 2022

From October 24 to 28, 2022, in cooperation with the Anti-Corruption & Integrity Promotion (A-CIP) Programme, the Mozambique Revenue Authority (AT) organized a series of meetings with government border management agencies, Customs brokers associations, various Chambers of Commerce and Industry, and shipping companies, to jointly find solutions to corruption in the country. This series of workshops contributed to the fulfilment of the AT’s objectives under the A-CIP Programme, in particular to improve mutual trust and cooperation between the private sector and Customs.

Transparency was identified as critical to fostering cooperation, cohesion and synergy with all stakeholders. The results of the Customs Integrity Perception Survey (CIPS) conducted in Mozambique in 2020 were extensively discussed to identify needs and room for improvement.

Successful meetings were held between customs officials and the different stakeholder groups, focusing on the ten key factors of the WCO Revised Arusha Declaration. Participants played an active role and shared their views on critical issues. For each key factor, the meetings identified the next steps for enhancing the partnership to continue fighting corruption together and promoting integrity. To do so, a multi-disciplinary working group, supported by experts from the A-CIP Programme, will be tasked to establish a work plan to address the identified essential points.

The WCO A-CIP Programme currently supports more than 20 countries in five WCO regions, with funding from Norad and Canada. For more information, please, contact
