Parker Challenges Customs Brokers Develop New Skills

By Johnson Bobby Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, March 17 (LINA) – National Port Authority Managing Director Matilda Parker has urged the National Customs Brokers Association of Liberia to develop new skills and ways in discharging their duties to meet international standards and best practices.

She observed that acquiring new skills and styles in the industry is necessary because the world and technology continue to change and Liberia continues to grow, therefore custom brokers must conform to the unfolding reality.

Parker noted that “customs is often the first window in which the rest of the world gets to know a country and custom brokers are one of the world’s trusted trade partners because they have the ability to promote trade facilitation with accountability and consistency.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Parker made the comment when she served as keynote speaker at the seventh National Convention of the National Customs Brokers Association of Liberia held in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County on Monday.

“Your role as customs brokers is pivotal in the rebuilding process of Liberia and you operate at the very center of all trades by submitting and releasing customs on behalf of your clients,” she said.
