Dubai, United Arab Emirates - 18 June 2019:   Dubai Customs has actively taken part in the WCO IT/TI Conference & Exhibition which took place from 12 to 14 June 2019, in the Azerbaijani capital, Baku.

Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, Director General of Dubai Customs headed Dubai Customs delegation to the conference which took place this year under the theme “New technologies for SMART borders – New opportunities for Trade, Travel and Transport”. The international event explored implications of the digital world on Customs and other Government agencies in the future. 

“Participating in this global exhibition is part of our commitment towards more excellence and success, and comes in support of our leading position in coordinating security efforts with other customs departments and law enforcement authorities.” Musabih said “For the first time, the WCO has merged its two major public-private sector events that contribute to the shaping of customs technology-related initiatives. This makes this year's event of special importance to all participants.”

Musabih added: 

“Dubai Customs played a noticeable part in developing customs work internationally through close coordination with the WCO and exchange of expertise and knowledge with other customs entities around the world.” 

The exhibition showcased most recent technological developments of the private and public sectors that provide new capabilities and opportunities and impact how customs facilitates trade and performs its regulatory tasks. It also explored potential areas of synergy amongst relevant stakeholders at national, regional and international level.
