     The Commissioner of Hong Kong Customs and Excise, Mr Clement Cheung, today (December 18) attended the 30th Customs Cooperation Conference in Seoul, Korea, and signed agreed minutes for closer co-operation with the Commissioner of the Korea Customs Service, Mr Joo Yung-sup.
     The conference offered a platform for Hong Kong Customs and the Korea Customs Service to update the latest development and discuss further co-operation between the two administrations.

     Commenting on the conference, Mr Cheung said, "The conference is a very successful one for the two administrations to exchange constructive ideas and initiatives.

     "With the long-standing co-operation between the two administrations, Hong Kong Customs will further take proactive initiatives to foster a closer and more strategic partnership with the Korean Customs to meet forthcoming challenges," he added.

     During the conference, they also signed an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) Action Plan. The signing of the action plan paved the way for the conclusion of the AEO MRA, which will provide clearance facilitation to traders at international level.  

     The Commissioner and the Hong Kong Customs delegation will return to Hong Kong tomorrow (December 19).
