Despite the ongoing concern regarding the global health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical that Customs administrations continue to facilitate the seamless flow of goods, especially relief goods, to help mitigate the overall impact of the pandemic.

Business professionals, Customs managers and administrators, border agency officials, international organization representatives and academia will benefit from the intensive interactive discussions of the most pertinent topics in the Customs environment today.

The courses will be led by technical experts widely respected in their various fields and will also include instructors from private sector companies, government institutions, and academia. The primary objective of the WCO Knowledge Academy for Customs and Trade is to provide an intense training for Customs and Business practitioners.
