Uganda is the new World Customs Organisation East and South African Regional Group (WCO ESA) chairperson.
This was revealed Monday by Uganda Revenue Authority whose Customs Commissioner, Dicksons Kateshumbwa, is currently at WCO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.
The South Africa Revenue Services Chief Officer Customs & Excise, Jed Michaletos, has handed over instruments of power to URA’s Kateshumbwa today.
Uganda has therefore ascended to the helm of the World Customs Organisation East and South African Regional Group (WCO ESA) as the chairperson.
WCO ESA Regional Group brings together 24 countries.
Uganda will represent at the WCO policy commission.
“Great things lie ahead for the pearl of Africa,” URA said in a tweet.
