South Korea-While most international projects are faced with setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Korea Customs Service (KCS) continues with undisrupted international development projects through remote development and launching systems modeled after UNI-PASS, as well as contact-less engagements with other customs authorities via high-level video conferences and online lectures.

Beyond the system development, the KCS is continuing with this year’s customs modernization consulting projects in the contact-less manner via video conferences and online lectures for 4 developing countries.

The KCS plans to develop various online training contents for developing countries in preparation for the protracted COVID-19 situation, and once the international travel condition improves on-site activities will be resumed in the recipient countries as well as Korea by sending KCS experts and also inviting customs officials to Korea for training programs.

Director of Information Planning Division, said, “For international development projects, it is more important than anything to maintain trusting relationships with recipient countries.”

“It is a very difficult time now but we are working together with Korean companies, Korean embassies as well as overseas KOICA offices in the recipient countries to push through undisrupted international development projects,” he added.
