According to URA Customs Commissioner, Richard Kamajugo, the initiative commenced back in June 2012 when the URA visited south Sudan and proposed the mutual collaboration.

The memorandum signing which was expected to take place some months back was stalled by the uprising that broke up and persisted since December 15 last year.

The agreement, Kamajugo said, is aimed at enhancing cooperation between the two countries, joint border control, exchange of information, and reduction of crime.


“It is also hoped to trim down the cost of doing business on the Northern corridor which has remained highest in the region,” he noted.

At the event, the South Sudanese Director General Customs Services, Gen. Mikaya Modi, hailed the Ugandan tax body for the support extended since the creation of the country three years ago.

He said that the new framework would be influential furthering the cooperation in terms sharing information and discussion of technical issues that may arise at the border.
