A consolidated report on the recommendations and outcomes of the 2013 World Custom Organization IT Conference and Exhibition, held under the patronage of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has been issued. The Dubai Declaration stressed the importance of strengthening coordination at the local and international levels between departments of customs, security, environment, health, municipalities, and immigration.
Commenting on the Dubai Declaration, H.H. Dr. Anwar Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, reiterated that the global event represented a good opportunity for coordination and cooperation between customs and border authorities around the world, to facilitate trade and ensure the protection of economies and societies, saying, “Complexities of globalisation and regional unrest are a major challenge that must be addressed in a way that ensures the country remains on track to security and stability, without hindering the flow of trade and investment. To achieve this stability and remove all barriers, there should be an effective customs system. That’s why Governments must work on building partnerships between government entities such as ports, customs and other outlets, and their counterparts in other countries in order to enhance the competitiveness of the country and the efficiency ”
Hosted in Dubai from 14th – 16th May, the conference explored ways that modern information and communication technology (ICT) can transform the government’s approach to border management. The conference hosted 19 activities including three roundtable discussions, three sessions, 10 speeches and three specialised technical seminars, headlined by over 70 speakers comprising key office bearers, leaders, decision-makers and experts in customs management worldwide, bringing together more than 1,000 international, regional and local representatives of the World Customs Organisation, stakeholders and international media organisations as well as customs departments of more than 100 countries.
