Using controlled deliveries to combat wildlife crime
31-10-2011

Controlled delivery allows illicit or suspect consignments to pass out of, through, or into, the territory of one or more countries, with the knowledge of, and under the supervision of competent authorities. Th e technique has rarely been used to combat wildlife crime, although it is widely used - and with good results - to combat other areas of crime such as the illegal or illicit trade in drugs, precursor chemicals, and tobacco. Two recent cases where controlled delivery has been used to successfully combat wildlife traffi cking are highlighted in this article.

Customs and business, equally reaping rewards from trade facilitation
30-06-2011

Trade facilitation is sometimes mistakenly viewed as speeding up the clearance of goods regardless of revenue and other implications, thereby solely delivering benefi ts to the private sector. Indeed, when the WTO Doha Development Round started, some observers wondered if trade facilitation might not be better described as trade effi cacy. Th is implies that the goal of the negotiations should include the achievement of the broad objectives of Customs controls, such as revenue collection, security and community protection in an effi cient manner, thereby facilitating legitimate trade.

Korea’s Client-oriented Logistics Information System
30-06-2011

In 2010, Korea’s trade volume reached USD 891.6 billion – accounting for 89% of the nation’s GDP of approximately USD 1 trillion – making Korea the 9th largest trading country in the world. Given the huge contribution of foreign trade to the country’s GDP which shows its high level of dependency on external trade, the Korea Customs Service (KCS) has stepped up its effort to make innovations to the trade logistics system for speedier and more facilitated international trade.

Trade facilitation takes centre stage in Asia/Pacific
30-06-2011

The ASIA/PACIFIC region is experiencing rapid economic growth along with increased integration of global markets for goods, services and investment. In this environment, Customs is playing an important role by facilitating the international movement of goods and people while safeguarding national and regional interests. To contribute more effectively to this economic growth, many Customs authorities in the Asia/Pacific region have been pushing themselves to reform and modernize their administrations. They are working both individually and collaboratively to make steady progress towards that goal and the WCO and the Asia/Pacifi c Regional Office for Capacity Building (ROCB A/P) have been assisting their efforts in a number of ways. Some good examples of regional efforts appear below.
