Angola designates 20 AEO companies
3 May 2019 - by
A total of 20 import and export companies from Angola will be designated as authorised economic operators (AEOs), according to the director of the Customs Services of the General Tax Administration (AGT), Garcia Afonso.
He said the AEO programme in Angola would help facilitate trade by simplifying customs procedures and reducing non-tariff barriers to international trade.
An Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) is defined by the World Customs Organisation as “a party involved in the international movement of goods in whatever function that has been approved by, or on behalf of a national customs administration, so as to comply with WCO or equivalent supply chain security standards”.
Recognition as an AEO helps fast-track customs clearance across regional and international borders.
