Phnom Penh, 19 December 2023 ̶ The ARISE Plus Cambodia Team attended the 7th Steering Committee Meeting for the ASYCUDA Modernization Project on 13 December 2023, chaired by H.E. Dr. KUN Nhem, Minister Attached to the Prime Minister and Director General of the General Department of Customs and Excise of Cambodia (GDCE).
The meeting reviewed progress and set strategic direction for further implementation of customs digitalization projects, such as the Digitizing Global Maritime Trade (DGMT) and Digitizing Global Trade (DGT). Monitoring and evaluation were acknowledged as crucial to ensure the initiatives provide faster customs clearance for the private sector. These key initiatives are geared towards the modernization of customs automation systems and the simplification of customs procedures, particularly the Pre-arrival Processing which is set to be launched in January 2024.
On behalf of the European Union (EU) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), ARISE Plus Cambodia is working closely together with the GDCE and other partners on these customs modernization initiatives to facilitate trade.
