IFC Pledges to Advise Customs Reform

April 6 , 2019

A cooperation agreement between the International Finance Cooperation and the Ethiopian Customs Commission has been signed to provide advisory support for reforms in trade logistics. The agreement, signed between Dahlia Khalifa, senior manager at IFC, and Debelle Kabeta, commissioner of Customs, provides a framework for advisory support to be implemented in a three-year program in partnership with the Commission as well as other public and private sector stakeholders. IFC has been working with the former Ethiopian Revenues & Customs Authority to improve the country’s investment climate. The new agreement is a continuation of the previous initiative and will build on the work that has already been done. The new program is expected to improve ECC’s customs risk management, establish streamlined transit and border crossing procedures and implement the national Electronic Single Window (eSW) system.
