(Singapore) A delegation of senior business executives organized by the US-ASEAN Business Council conducted their annual mission to the ASEAN Customs Directors-General Meetings today. The delegation focused their discussions on best practices in trade facilitation and supporting anti-counterfeiting measures in ASEAN.  The Council has formally attended the Customs Directors-General Meetings for the past 17 years. The Delegation was led by the Council’s Customs Working Group Chair, Andrew Jackson of IBM, and Kathy Santillo, Regional  Managing Director of the Council.
“Streamlining and unifying customs procedures is at the heart of a successfully implemented ASEAN Economic Community,”  said Mr Jackson. “The Council strongly supports the prioritization of the ASEAN Single Window as a measure that will substantially increase ASEAN’s ability  to function as a single market and production base. “
“The Council commends ASEAN’s customs officials for their efforts to combat trade in counterfeit goods,” said Ms Santillo. “Enhancing regional cooperation on this issue, harmonizing import and export documentation, and developing comprehensive partnerships between the  public and private sectors will help ensure continued improvement in this vital area.”
Companies participating in the delegation included Apple, Cargill, General Motors, HP, IBM, KPMG, L-3 Communications, Phillip Morris International, PwC, and UPS.

In addition to the group meeting, the Council also held bilateral discussions with the senior Customs officials from Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam and Myanmar,and H.E. Lim Hong Hin, Deputy Secretary General of the ASEAN Secretariat.
