Customs, EU’s DG TAXUD partner to streamline trade and documentation in Nigeria 

The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has announced its collaboration with the Directorate-General Taxation and Customs Union (DG TAXUD) of the European Union (EU), aimed at streamlining trade processes, overseeing exports, and improving documentation within Nigeria.  

This development was revealed by the Comptroller-General (CG) of Customs, Adewale Adeniyi, following discussions with DG TAXUD officials in Abuja on Tuesday.  

Adeniyi highlighted the timeliness of this partnership, especially as the NCS is in pursuit of a reliable digital platform to enhance its documentation validation capabilities.  

He voiced his optimism about the partnership, envisioning it as a gateway to new opportunities for the economic sectors of both registered exporters and the broader regions involved.  

Furthermore, he underscored the importance of establishing a framework between the NCS and DG TAXUD to effectively verify and validate exported goods.
