Why this project?

The GoDRC (DGDA) has initiated the migration from ASYCUDA++ Customs Management System to ASYCUDA World, a web-based platform in partnership with UNCTAD. Many Customs offices in East DRC still on ASYCUDA ++ or are still using a manual system to clear goods. TMEA in partnership with the Directorate General of Customs (DGDA) and UNCTAD is supporting to fill the gap of the ASYCUDA World deployment in eastern DRC. The project is in line with TMEA’s goal to reduce transport costs and times on main corridors. The project will streamline Customs procedures for faster clearance with less paperwork, increase country’s tax revenue generated from taxes on trade, provided by the DGDA increased compliance and adoption of better risk-based approaches to controlling borders. The work of DGDA will be supported by UNCTAD who will provide installation, training and maintenance support of ASYCUDA World.
