After using the ASYCUDA computerized customs management system for many years, Guinea now plans to adopt more solutions to make its customs office more efficient.

This year, the Guinean Customs office plans to speed up its digitalization to be more efficient and produce better financial results. Its managing director, Col. Moussa Camara (photo), disclosed this on 26 January 2022 during a ceremony held to celebrate the International Customs Day.

According to Guinea Morning, Camara explained that his administration would continue "to dematerialize clearance procedures in all its offices across the country, extend the payment of duties and taxes online and other modes of payment, extend the possibilities of access to customs computer systems, including through cell phones, continue and finalize the deployment of the electronic platform for foreign trade management in collaboration with the Guichet, and continue the interconnection with the computer system of public and private entities."

In 2011, the Guinean Customs started its digital transformation and in 2015 it switched management systems from ASYCUDA++ to ASYCUDA WORLD. To facilitate trade with other West African countries, which have also begun modernizing their customs administration, the country, over the past years, has been investing steadily in more advanced digital tools.

Moussa Cissé, Guinea's Minister of Budget, was present at the ceremony held on International Customs Day. On the occasion, he said that the 2022 revenue target set for the Customs office was 12,975.746 billion Guinean francs ($1.44 billion), under the forecast budget.
