    RAMNS: Region Americas
    Wednesday 26th September 2018
    2.15pm to 4.15pm

      Customs agencies, long seen as a steward of a nation's trade and borders, are under pressure like never before. This pressure is arriving simultaneously on many fronts, requiring Customs to perform at the highest levels to facilitate legitimate trade. Traders demand that Customs not disrupt their just-in-time supply chains as both nations and companies seek to gain a competitive edge.

      Trade facilitation can reduce transaction costs of international trade and create economic wealth, especially in developing countries, where red tape and other procedural barriers to trade tend to be high. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) estimated that even a 1% reduction in such "hidden costs" would boost the global economy by $40bn (£26bn), with most of those benefits going to the developing world.

      Against this background the RAMNS would like to invite one speaker, Mr. Enrique Canon, Director General of Uruguay Customs and Chair of the WCO, to talk about Customs dynamics in the region. He shall include an outlook into the future of Customs in the Americas as well as information on trade integration and facilitation.

    9:000 am to 10:00 am

    Trade fraud has taken place ever since trade itself first appeared and, unfortunately, is still troubling the whole trade industry, including logistics services providers and freight forwarders. There is no solution so far that can cure this problem once and for all, but measures do exist to offer trade participants better protection.

    The ABLM session in FIATA 2018 World Congress will take another look into this old yet chronic problem, focusing on new forms of fraud that bother the industry today and ways of preventing them. ABLM plans to invite speakers of local and global practicing forwarders, insurers or representatives of international organizations to have a live penal discussion and share their view on preventing trade fraud.”
