Jun 2012 The ETN Annual meeting at the Art Navigli
EurTradeNet and ACO Informatica welcomed this month in North Italy the ETN Annual Meeting. Over 30 top managers presented their eCustoms service provision and discussed on sector challenges, actively listening to the external interventions of core regulatory bodies and third Trade Associations.
We are living in the age of e-commerce and both Traders and Customs Administrations everywhere rely on expert solutions being put together by specialised providers who deeply understand the complexities of the supply chain: the CRSPs.
Gareth Lewis, Technical Officer of Trade Facilitation at the WCO, acknowledges the good contribution of EurTradeNet to their internal workforces dealing with IT&Customs, and looks forward closer collaboration of ETN experts on key WCO initiatives as the Data Model, Coordinated Border Management and Globally Networked Customs.
Frank Janssens, Head of Unit A3 at DG TAXUD, on mission in Ankara to look forward the effective deployment NCTS in Turkey within 2012, emphasizes the importance of a seamless Customs Union in Europe, and how helpful are being the ETN experts to overcome technical barriers that still separate from that achievement. In addition to its stable membership of the Trade Contact Group and active participation in key workforces of the Electronic Customs Group, EurTradeNet has been also invited to the Customs Code Committee section on Data Integration and Harmonisation.
Marc Van de Perre, Senior Adviser on Customs and Indirect Taxation at the European Forwarding Federation, deeply explained on the Customs reform and main trade implications, as well as the CLECAT interaction with the different EU institutions, encouraging EurTradeNet to jointly support core eCustoms matters with its complementary and unique IT expertise.
All ETN partners and members presented what’s new in their CRSP actuation since last year. Small&medium providers with a regional focus together with larger firms with multinational scope, and key representatives from third institutions… they jointly discussed on sector concerns and upfront challenges, learning from overall initiatives and encouraging further global actuations EurTradeNet should direct for the best benefit of its professional membership.
The ETN Alliance is growing and in constant search for complementary expertise to add to its unique professional network. Please see our current ETN knowledge map.
