Hong Kong Customs Thursday signed a Customs Cooperative Arrangement (CCA) with the Directorate General of Customs and Excise of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Customs said in a statement that the signing of the CCA marked the common wish of both customs administrations to strengthen all forms of cooperation through mutual administrative assistance including the exchange of information and enforcement of customs laws for the fight against transnational crimes such as smuggling of endangered species, narcotics and tobacco products.

Apart from law enforcement fronts, the administrative assistance under the CCA also covers information sharing for the proper application of customs laws such as the trade facilitation procedures, import and export control and formalities streamlining, which aims at contributing to an efficient trade facilitating environment to expedite the flow of all legitimate trade between the two sides.

Hong Kong Customs, so far, has signed Customs Cooperative Arrangements with 24 customs administrations, comprising the General Administration of Customs of the People's Republic of China and 23 overseas customs administrations.
