Andrew Farrelly Briefs WCO Deputy General on Development of a New AEO Program in Abu Dhabi

CT Strategies is proud to be assisting the Emirate of Abu Dhabi on building a modern Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) program. The CT Strategies team has drawn upon its extensive experience in AEO and in the region to align the new Program with the economic development objectives of Abu Dhabi while applying best practices from the United States and the World Customs Organization (WCO) SAFE Framework of Standards.

During the course of the project, the Director General of Abu Dhabi Customs recently invited WCO Secretary General, Ricardo Treviño Chapa, to have a dialogue with the project team, including CT Strategies’ Andrew Farrelly. A main theme of the dialogue was strengthening cooperation between Customs and the Private Sector. The potential for Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) implementation was also discussed.

The Deputy Secretary General stressed the importance of harmonizing the implementation of AEO programs to move toward universal recognition. He also mentioned including e-commerce stakeholders and leveraging technology such as data analytics and blockchains.

These closures and associated effects on the global supply chain have come when the United States and other countries are reversing course on pandemic control measures.
