The technical assistance was a continuation of ADB’s support for customs reforms and modernization following the 2002 launch of the Regional Trade Facilitation and Customs Cooperation Program (RTFCCP). During the initial phase of the RFTCCP, ADB supported the strengthening of legal and regulatory framework and the operational efficiency of customs organizations through a program loan and a regional TA.
The TA aimed to facilitate project implementation and to maximize its impact through improvements in the institutional structure and business processes of the State Customs Committee. The TA comprised three components: (i) change management for customs modernization; (ii) re-engineering of customs business processes; and (iii) quality and security features for the unified automated information system (UAIS) and border-post infrastructure development.
