U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) signed a Joint Work Plan (JWP) with the customs administration of Guatemala at the Trade Facilitation and Cargo Security Summit. 

“These agreement help us work more closely with our international partners to secure and facilitate the supply chain across the globe,” said CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus. 

For the event, Commissioner Magnus hosted Werner Ovalle Ramirez, Customs Director of Guatemala’s Superintendencia de Administracion Tributaria.

 A JWP is a document that lays out the path towards a Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) between the two customs administration’s Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) programs. A JWP shows commitment from both programs, requires high level support, and lays out detailed steps towards a MRA. At the completion of a JWP, both customs administrations will determine if an MRA is feasible and should be pursued.
