Poi Pet border crossing
Trade happens when goods cross borders. The Deputy Chief of Banteay Meanchey Custom and Excise Branch, Mr. Chou Sophano, and his colleagues welcomed the ARISE Plus Cambodia team to the country’s busiest land border crossing (Poi Pet) to talk about customs processes at the Thai-Cambodian border. The meeting was complemented with site visits to one of Poi Pet’s dry ports as well as to a container inspection facility of Poi Pet Custom and Excise Office. Thus, the ARISE Plus Cambodia team learned first-hand about Cambodia’s customs clearance and risk management procedures, and held discussions about Cambodia’s ambition to further facilitate trade with Thailand.
