The head of the UAE's Federal Customs Authority met the Secretary-General of the World Customs Organisation at the 129th-130th session of the WCO's Council in Brussels.
The two parties explored prospects for joint co-operation between the United Arab Emirates and the WCO through the exchange of expertise and best practices, the latest developments in the customs sector and how the WCO could benefit from the UAE experience in customs studies, a report said on Saturday.
The meeting between Federal Customs Authority head Ali Al Kaabi and WCO's Secretary-General Kunio Mikuriya also touched on the role and mission of the Abu Dhabi-based Regional Office for Capacity Building (ROCB).
"The UAE is an active contributing member in the WCO's programmes and initiatives, given its status as a regional trade hub and an important trade actor in the world trade," said Al Kaabi.
