ASYCUDA presented in Kyrgyzstan

The system substantially reduces the customs clearance time as well as practices related to corruption.

On March 24, Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic Ulukbek Maripov had a meeting with Acting Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Isabelle Durant via videoconference. The parties discussed the issues related to digital transformation of customs services, the press office of the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic reports.

The UNCTAD Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) that substantially reduces the customs clearance time as well as practices related to corruption and increases the effective collection of customs revenues was presented.

The Prime Minister said the priority areas of the Government’s activities included digital transformation of public services.

Maripov expressed belief that the adoption of ASYCUDA by a number of countries offered hope that the potential use of the system in Kyrgyzstan would particularly streamline procedures of clearance of goods and increase levels of national revenue.

He noted that Kyrgyzstan was interested in using ASYCUDA and hoped for further partnerships with UNCTAD.
