The Algerian Customs will be strengthened, as from the second half of 2019, with a new computer system to facilitate commercial transactions, announced Saturday, in Blida, this institution’s Director General Farouk Bahamid.
“This new system, which ensures further transparency to the customs activity, will facilitate the transport of goods while reducing customs clearance deadline, i.e. a drop in logistic costs,” said Bahamid in his speech at the ceremony celebrating the International Customs Day (January 26th), marked by the presence of Director General of Customs Farouk Bahamid and Minister of Environment and Renewable Energies Fatma Zohra Zerouati as well as Secretary General of the General Union of Algerian Workers (UGTA) Abdelmadjid Si Said.
This ambitious project is the fruit of the cooperation between the administration of the Algerian Customs and their South Korean counterparts, he said, particularly as “they (the South Korean Customs) had experienced the same issues faced currently by the Algerian Customs,” he said.
“The national expertise is another factor of this project’s success,” said the director general of the Algerian Customs, who underlined, in this regard, the signing of an agreement with the Digital Development Support Company, to ensure the management of the new computing system, in addition to another draft agreement that was signed with the express mail on the entry into service of the application relating to the electronic site for the exchange of information.
This common website entitled “Customs declaration system” will notably allow, according to the official, “an immediate exchange of data and messages relating to the control of postal data by the Customs’ departments.”
The same agreement, signed with the Digital Development Support Company, will allow the Algerian Customs to set up a “new unique system for customs services.”
