The World Customs Organization (WCO) in cooperation with Japan Customs held a WCO Asia Pacific Regional Workshop on Risk-Based Cargo Selectivity to define a common approach in managing customs risks and emphasize the importance of risk management to organization members. Mr. Takehito Matsumura, Deputy Director General of Japan Customs and WCO representatives highlighted:
