This training programme is a joint exercise run by the five East African revenue authorities of Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Burundi and Tanzania and the Freight Forwarders Associations in the respective countries.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Assistant Commissioner Human Resource Jessie Abonyo congratulated the students on their successful completion of the programme.

“The course you have completed is one of the initial stages of professionalizing the industry,” she said.


She also applauded the Freight Forwarding and Clearing Industry in the economy of Uganda and commended URA for the efforts made in the implementation of the programme.

The Commissioner Customs, Richard Kamajugo, the day’s guest of honour welcomed the partnership among the revenue authorities in the region and clearing and forwarding fraternity.

“This is a living example of a successful local partnership. It is a timely development considering the trends URA is adopting in trade facilitation such as Asycuda World,” Kamajugo expressed.

TradeMark East Africa is supporting the programme and is currently funding and coordinating the intake at Kololo Senior Secondary School with the aim of ensuring that 8000 agents trained by 2014.

The course, managed by the National Curriculum Implementation Committee (NCIC) is tailored to suit beneficiaries in customs practices, freight forwarding and management skills.
