Customs Bureau Modernizes System
By Prince Nagbe

MONROVIA, Feb 3 (LINA) - The Bureau of Customs at the Ministry of Finance says it has completed a strategic plan aimed at improving its revenue department.

Acting Customs Commissioner Dixon Seboe said the strategic plan was crafted on four pillars that highlight objectives that are being implemented by the four thematic modernization pillars.

The Customs Commissioner told the Liberia News Agency over the weekend that the four pillars are the Automation Policy, Legislation, Training and Infrastructure.

Seboe said the bureau’s automation process, which is being funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB) in partnership with UNCTAD and UNOPS, has continued its roll-out campaign to four additional ports in 2013.

He said the four additional ports are Bo-Waterside, Loguatuo, Yekepa and Toe Town, bringing to 11 the total number of automated ports.

The Customs boss also disclosed that the Bureau has introduced a Non-intrusive Inspection Technology (NIT) at the Freeport of Monrovia aimed at limiting the physical search and inspection of cargo.

He said the NIT is two mobile container scanners that were donated by the Government of China, which are used to inspect containers at the Freeport of Monrovia in order to reduce the burden of physically inspecting them.
