24 Oct 2018

The Commissioner of Customs and Excise, Mr Hermes Tang, and the Chief Executive Officer of the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service, Mr Visvanath Das, signed the Customs Co-operative Arrangement (CCA) at the Customs Headquarters Building in Hong Kong today (October 24), with an aim of stepping up mutual co-operation in law enforcement and trade facilitation.

The CCA reflects both sides' wishes to strengthen co-operation in intelligence exchanges and law enforcement by means of mutual administrative assistance in battling transnational crimes.

Apart from co-operation in law enforcement, both sides would also strengthen information sharing to facilitate co-operation in trade facilitation, import/export controls and procedure streamlining with an aim of creating a business-friendly environment for legitimate trade activities.

Currently, Hong Kong Customs has signed Customs Co-operative Agreements/Arrangements with 25 customs administrations, consisting of the General Administration of Customs of the People's Republic of China and 24 overseas customs administrations.
