The OCO provided support to Customs Officials from Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Marshall Islands and Nauru to attend Training on WTO Valuation, Rules of Origin, Post Clearance and Harmonised System held in Kiribati from 8-17 November, 2016.

Whilst the Program was specifically targeted at Kiribati Customs Service and sponsored by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the program was also extended to the three OCO members to optimize opportunity and building their respective capacity on those key trade facilitation instruments.

The small Customs administrations although not parties to the WTO, it is their interest to simply and harmonize Customs procedures given that they are parties to regional preferential trade agreements that incorporates most of these trade facilitation measures.
