Tunisian Customs: preparing the next generation to promote integrity

25 一月 2023

From 16 to 18 January 2023, WCO A-CIP Programme organised a capacity building workshop with Tunisian Customs on governance and the development of its Next Generation Network (NGN). The NGN is intended to act as a catalyst for transformation and innovation within Tunisian Customs, bringing together next-generation officers and managers involved in the development of future leaders and decision-makers.

With the support of experts from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and drawing on CBSA’s own NGN, some twenty Tunisian executives worked on an action plan for 2023, aiming at creating the winning conditions for an efficient NGN. Particular attention was paid to the commitment of its members, management’s support and the respect of a balanced approach based on diversity.

During the workshop, representatives of CBSA’s NGN were able to present their best practices and some points of vigilance in order to provide Tunisian Customs with the necessary tools to prepare a new generation of officers and decision-makers within Tunisian Customs. The results of the Customs Integrity Perception Survey (CIPS) conducted in Tunisia in 2021 were also presented and discussed, particularly those related to Human Resources Management and Organisational Culture, to raise awareness among the members of the Tunisian Customs’ NGN.

The WCO A-CIP Programme currently supports over 20 WCO Member administrations, with funding from Norad and Canada. For more information, please contact capacity.building@wcoomd.org.
