Ethiopia, Djibouti Customs to Share Port Database

(HornTrade) – Revenue and Customs Authority of Ethiopia (RCuA) is going interface its database with Djibouti Customs Office, reports Capital. This is meant to better manage and control incoming and outgoing goods of the country, according to the news report.

The authority negotiated with their counterpart of Djibouti and reached an agreement to interface their database to supply detailed information about incoming and outgoing goods in Ethiopia, according to sources at the authority.

According to its performance report, presented to the parliament this month, the authority seized incoming contraband goods worth 1.13 billion birr within the last nine months of this fiscal year. It also controlled and stopped goods worth 200 million birr while illegally leaving the country.

The authority obtained 300 million birr from the goods seized through manual inspections and through law enforcement operations, according to the report.

The current labor-intensive operation of controlling contraband goods and imports would be eased when the preparation to interface the databases is completed according to the official.
