Were present, customs and its technical arms, port operators, executives from the Ministry of the Economy and Finance, the Agency for the Promotion of Investment and Rxports (APIeX). Reduction of the timeframes of operations and their costs, securing of the Corridor, transparency and reliability of operations, etc. This is what all the reforms implemented for foreign trade contribute. The implementation of the Import Verification Program piloted by the technical partner Benin Control, the dematerialization of customs clearance procedures via the Single Window for Foreign Trade (GUCE), the migration of all customs units to ASYCUDA World, the implementation place of a National Program of Authorized Economic Operators (AEO)… etc. These are innovations that make life easier for those involved in cross-border trade. These reforms were exposed by the Beninese customs under the direction of the Director General Charles INOUSSA SACCA to the assistance which strongly welcomed them.
