From June 7-8, 2017, CLDP will conduct a Workshop on Authorized Economic Operators (AEOs) in Pristina, Kosovo. Following Kosovo’s accession to the World Customs Organization (WCO) in March 2017, CLDP will work with Kosovo Customs to develop and implement an AEO system that meets WCO standards and follows international best practices. CLDP’s workshop will call upon the expertise of two European Union (EU) experts from the Customs Administration of the Czech Republic as well as an American expert from US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to provide 35 Kosovo Customs officials an overview of AEOs and recommendations for the design and implementation of an AEO system. The workshop will also include representatives from the private sector, with 10 participants from the American Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo invited to provide their perspective and learn about the potential benefits of an AEO system to businesses in Kosovo. This workshop is the fifth phase in a series intended to build the capacity of Kosovo Customs.
