Honduras, Featured Country by the World Customs Organization

The World Customs Organization (WCO) highlighted Honduras as its Featured Country of the month as part of the Customs Administration efforts for modernization, control strengthening and trade facilitation.

In an interview with Juan José Vides, Executive Director of the Customs Administration of Honduras, the WCO reaffirmed its support for Honduras over a set of recommendations to facilitate intraregional trade and promote the establishment of secure regional supply chains.

As part of the WCO’s strategy, great importance is being placed on the development of tools for the improvement of coordinated border management and on assisting members with implementation of facilitation initiatives.
Honduras Customs has strengthen its current performance while carrying out a process of transition towards a new decentralized administration, aware of the need to balance between facilitation and control to achieve higher institutional efficiency.

With this in mind, Honduras authorities have worked on strategic plans, leading projects, indicators, organizational structure, HR selection process, budget, infrastructure, IT, special regimes, risk management systems, post-clearance audit, exchange of information, import, export and transit procedures.
