AEO-event 2018: ’10 ans AEO’

En 2018, le concept AEO fête son 10 ans ! À la douane belge, nous ne pouvons passer à côté d’une telle occasion. C’est pourquoi l’Administration générale des Douanes et Accises (AGD&A) organise le vendredi 14 septembre 2018 un deuxième événement consacré aux AEOs. Vu notre étroit partenariat avec les opérateurs économiques agréées, nous voudrions célébrer cette date ensemble, en y incluant les fédérations et les ports.
Durant de sessions plénières générales et de sessions thématiques, nous aborderons, avec le soutien d’intervenants au niveau national et international, plusieurs sujets relatifs à la douane. La journée de l’événement sera également une excellente possibilité de « networking ».
