ICC and World Customs Organization Strengthen Partnership

USCIB’s affiliate the International Chamber of Commerce and the World Customs Organization (WCO) have signed a revised memorandum of understanding that sets out working activities between the two parties.

The signing took place as part of a two-day conference, entitled Open Day for Trade, hosted by WCO at its headquarters in Brussels. The aim of the event was to encourage the sharing of information, knowledge and experience between leaders and experts from both the customs and business communities.
