Around 35 members of this dedicated Task Force Team who come from the Directorate of Export-Import Facilitation (Ditfas) and Directorate of Consumer Protection and Market Surveillance (PKTN) joined the workshop held at the Alana Hotel at Sentul City, Bogor, on 8-9 August 2019, entitled Reviewing the Process Design at the Ministry of Trade for Issuing Licenses and for Controlling â€śLartasâ€ť Goods After Customs Release/Post-Border Control.
During the workshop , participants reviewed the current process design on import and export licenses issuance and post-border clearance.

This will lead to more effective inspection procedures and facilitate the licensing process.
The Ministry of Trade stressed the importance of the project for Indonesia to fulfill its commitments under the Trade Facilitation Agreement of the World Trade Organization. The project* itself is in line with the Indonesia Single Risk Management Strategy which contributes to the Indonesian Governmentâ€™s goal to develop a holistic approach to risk management encompassing all border agencies.
