Nigeria, Benin Customs begin sensitisation on connectivity
Nigeria Customs Service and the Customs administration of neighbouring Republic of Benin have finalised the technical aspects of connectivity and are set to sensitise stakeholders tomorrow on the business process and the inherent benefits in the project. Connectivity between both customs administrations is expected to achieve ease of doing business, promote trade, prevent revenue losses and curb smuggling across their common borders.
The new initiative, said to be a step further in the ECOWAS Alisa project is expected to be launched towards the end of this month. The spokesman for Nigeria Customs, Joseph Attah, described the move as one that will impact greatly and positively on the fortunes of trans border trade actors in both countries.
