Summary

On 11-12 September, the Office in Astana co-organised with the Customs Committee of the Finance Ministry and the US Embassy a two-day regional seminar on countering transnational organized crime in the area of customs.

Some 30 customs officers from Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan and Ukraine learned from experts from Georgia and representatives of the Central Asian Regional Information and Co-ordination Centre for Combating Illicit Drug Trafficking about good international practices in this area and exchanged their countries’ experience in this regard.

An interactive exercise simulated real-life situations that customs officers might face in their everyday work.
