World Customs Organisations (WCO) online workshop to assist Tonga’s Customs in improving its preparedness to respond to emergency situations.
Today, the World Customs Organisations (WCO) began an online workshop led by the Project Manager, Mr. Moez Ahmed, to assist Tonga's Customs in improving its preparedness to emergencies at the Customs head office in Fe'aomoengalu.
The Project's objective is to improve the Customs administration's preparedness to efficiently and effectively respond to and recover from future pandemics, natural disasters, and other disruptive events.
In response to the crisis, the WCO, with the financial support of the Government of Japan, launched in June 2020 the WCO COVID-19 Project. It aims to support WCO members (mainly in the least developed and developing countries) in dealing with COVID-19 impacts and enhance their ability to respond.
The target audience for this workshop are Customs Legal Services, Customs Frontline Officers, Relevant Border Agencies (Airport Authority/Border Police), National Authority responsible for disaster management, Ministry of Health, Trade, and Foreign Affairs.
This training will be from the 12th – 16th of September 2022.
