A WORD FROM THE RPM

The WCO-EAC Economic Development Program commenced in 2009.

The primary objective of the WCO-EAC Economic Development Program in Africa is to contribute to sustainable and improved economy in terms of trade, security and social protection through the development of Customs authorities as fair and effective trade management partners as well as modern social protection and revenue collection services.

Furthermore, the program aims to assist the member states of The East African Community (EAC) to comply with international Customs instruments and modernise their respective customs administrations.
