The latest version of the software to process declarations in Maldives Customs Service, ASYCUDA World has been officially launched, during the ceremony held to celebrate the International Customs Day.
During the function, Commissioner General of Customs, Mr. Ibrahim Shareef Mohamed highlighted on the importance given by the administration in 2016, to provide and facilitate a better environment for traders. Thus, this improvement in the system would enhance the speed of declaration processing and examination.
The migration from the previous ASYCUDA++ to the current version ASYCUDA World took almost two years and the financial support of MVR 18 million from the World Trade Organisation’s Enhanced Integrated Framework. More than 1000 Customs Officers, Customs Brokers, Importers and Exporters have been trained under this project.
