VLADIVOSTOK, September 18 (Itar-Tass) — The international conference “Customs Cooperation, Economic Relations and Legal Regulation in Asian Pacific Region and in the Customs Union” opened on Tuesday in Vladivostok.
The conference is timed to mark the 60th anniversary of the World Customs Organization, and besides this year is announced as the year of cooperation under the motto “Borders Divide; Customs Connect”.
Apart from plenary sessions, round-table discussions are scheduled. They will discuss prospects of Russia’s participation in regional zones of free trade, regional customs cooperation as well as tasks to internationalize customs education.
“The conference is held right after a summit of APEC leaders. This is a very good signal. Simplification of customs procedures is a concrete matter that can help us get closer to integration into the Asia Pacific Region,” the chairman of Primorye’s Legislative Assembly, Viktor Gorchakov, said.
“One of the main problems voiced at this conference is the training of personnel well informed about fundamentals of legislation, normative documents of the World Trade Organization,” Gorchakov said.
He believes “two Vladivostok higher education institutions – Far Eastern University and a branch of the Russian Customs Academy – could make substantial contribution to the training of such personnel”.
