Opening of the WCO’s 64th Fellowship Programme

03 октября 2014

September 2014

The 64th WCO Fellowship Programme, intended for English-speakers, was launched in Brussels on Monday 29 September 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 14 participants who were welcomed by Mr. Erich Kieck, Director Capacity Building. This introduction serves as a prelude to a series of conferences given by WCO experts, as well as to the eight-day Leadership and Management Development Workshop, facilitated by two experts, one from Uganda and the other from the WCO Secretariat. The fellows also benefited from a round-table discussion with Mr. Sergio Mujica, Deputy Secretary General of the WCO, during their first day at the Secretariat.

The participants will remain at WCO Headquarters until 24 October 2014 in order to prepare an in-depth study on a technical 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 English-speaking Fellowship Programme is funded by the Customs Administration of Japan and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea.

List of countries participating in the 64th Fellowship Programme: Malaysia, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Trinidad & Tobago, Zimbabwe, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Fiji, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, Maldives, Mauritius, Serbia and Vietnam.
