On February 12-14, in Brussels, Belgium, the CCTT participated in the 6th meeting of the WCO Working Group on E-Commerce
The meeting was attended by representatives from Nigeria, Australia, USA, Japan, Thailand, France, Brazil, Korea, Mexico, Holland, Belgium, New Zealand, China, Serbia, Germany, Senegal, representatives of international organizations such as the CCTT, EAEU, UNECE, FIATA, Amazon, Google.
During the meeting, it was discussed the issues related to ensuring confidentiality and security when crossing interstate borders, taxes and customs duties, and postal transportation in international traffic. The participants of the meeting exchanged their views and wishes on improving the quality, speed and safety of cargo transportation.
Participants of the meeting noted that the main difficulty faced by customs organizations in different countries is the generation and unification of E-Commerce data. In this regard, the development of measures and recommendations on e-Commerce will significantly facilitate the rules of cargo transportation, as well as help to overcome not only customs barriers, but also resolve the language polysemy by developing and introducing special terminology that will be approved by all WCO member countries.
Comments and additions proposed by WCO members play an important role in improving the efficiency of cargo transportation and facilitating customs procedures. The adopted recommendations will serve as a basis for future meetings, and will also be used as a basis for drawing up customs documents of different countries.
