Addendum

At its meeting of 12 May 1995, the Committee on Customs Valuation agreed that greater transparency of technical assistance activities, pursuant to Article 20.3 of the Agreement on Implementation of Article VII of the GATT 1994, would be ensured if the information documents prepared for the Technical Committee on Customs Valuation on such activities were also made available as WTO documents.

 

This document provides information on technical assistance activities carried out by the Secretariat of the World Customs Organization (WCO) and its Members, as contained in the annexes of WCO document VT1039E1a.
