The event is part of a series of webinars designed to explore different perspectives on trading goods in the digital age. In this edition, we will delve into the transformative impact of digital technologies such as electronic data interchange (EDI), blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), and big data analytics on modern customs operations. These technologies are revolutionizing the way customs authorities handle import, export, and transit procedures, significantly enhancing transparency and compliance, improving risk management and leading to faster clearance of goods and more secure borders. Expert customs speakers will showcase current practices, future trends, and the challenges customs authorities face in implementing these technologies, offering insights into overcoming challenges and driving further innovation.
