Why this project?

As part of the USAID-funded “Sudan Core Institutions Project” there was an assessment of the Customs Service in South Sudan. The report identified a number of “immediate critical actions”. These actions are considered essential before, or immediately after, independence to ensure that South Sudan takes steps towards establishing a fully functioning Customs Service. Customs is recognised as a key priority of GOSS as it takes steps to reduce its over-reliance on oil revenue by building up alternative revenue sources, especially customs duties.

What

The project aims at supporting the South Sudan Customs Services (SSCS) to become an effective and efficient agency able to support its government’s objective of diversifying its revenue incomes while facilitating trade.

How:

TMEA will provide and manage technical assistance to the Government of South Sudan to implement basic fundamentals of customs administration while laying a foundation for a wider customs reform strategy.
