The director of control of the AGD, Gracia Ralph insisted on the need to develop this new customs code to meet the conventions and agreements that regulate trade.

The modernization of customs control through the continued dematerialization of procedures and customs processes, the improvement of the risk management system, the modernization of the legal and regulatory framework among other important points cited in the implementation of this new customs code, said Garcia Ralph during his presentation.
