Tunisia-Customs calls for speeding up creation of position of customs attaché in embassies and consulates

(TAP) – Director-General of Customs Youssef Zouaghi, on Monday, called to speed up the creation of the position of customs attaché in Tunisian consulates and embassies.

"This request comes in response to the growing demand of Tunisians abroad whose number currently stands at 2 million who want the facilitation of administrative procedures," Zouaghi told TAP, on the sidelines of a press conference held in El Habibia, Manouba. According to him, this position is also important to boost investment, since a customs attaché can very well explain the new investment incentive code to Tunisians living abroad who wish to create projects in their home countries.

Through his key role in intelligence, the customs attaché can anticipate and contribute to reducing the number of goods and products seized at airports and ports as well as on the borders, Zouaghi added.
