Opening of the WCO’s 63rd Fellowship Programme

05 мая 2014

The 63rd WCO Fellowship Programme, at the same time the 4th in Spanish, was launched in Brussels on Monday 28 April 2014.

This Programme forms part of the WCO’s work to develop the management capacities of Member administrations in support of Customs Reform and Modernization programmes. It is designed to provide extremely promising young managers from Member administrations with access to and further familiarization with WCO and international standards, tools and instruments, but also with training in supervisory and management techniques, so as to help them carry out reform and modernization within their respective administrations in a dynamic and sustainable manner.

This latest Programme brings together 12 participants who were welcomed on the 28th by Mr. Mujica, Deputy Secretary General, World Customs Organization, and Ms. Heike Barczyk, Deputy Director Capacity Building. This introduction serves as a prelude to a series of conferences given by WCO experts, as well as to the seven-day Leadership and Management Development Workshop, facilitated by three experts from Chili, Colombia and the WCO Secretariat. The fellows also benefited from a round-table discussion with the Deputy Secretary General of the WCO, during their first day at the Secretariat.

The participants will remain at WCO Headquarters until 23 May 2014 in order to prepare an in-depth study on a subject of their choice, under the supervision of a Secretariat tutor, and to make recommendations to their respective administrations for possible subsequent implementation. Lastly the participants will spend a fortnight in one of the Programme’s partner Administrations (the Republic of Korea or Japan) to round off their study trip.

The Spanish-speaking Fellowship Programme is funded by the Customs Administrations of Japan and the Republic of Korea.

List of countries participating in the 63rd Fellowship Programme: Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Angola, Uruguay, Cuba, Colombia and Costa Rica.
