Cambodia, Japan Reach Customs Agreement


Cambodia’s General Department of Customs and Exercise (GDCE) under the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the Customs and Tariffs Bureau of Japan (CTBJ) agreed upon here last week on a number of points of cooperation between the two countries, especially the later assistance to the Cambodian customs at the international forums, according to GDCE.

H.E. Dr. Pen Simon, GDCE Director General met with Mr. Atsuo Shibota, Head of CTBJ in Phnom Penh last Thursday, to discuss the cooperation, especially the trade facilitation between the two countries.

GDCE has to strengthen its cooperation with the ASEAN countries and Japan as well as with other countries over the world to ensure the security and the smooth flow of goods supplies in the aftermath of the tsunami occurred in Japan last March, said Dr. Pen Simon.

Despite the natural disaster in Japan, the trade exchange volume between Cambodia and Japan is stable, he said.
GDCE has just signed a cooperation agreement with its S. Korean and Vietnamese counterparts.
