The Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs (CGC), Adewale Adeniyi and his team have toured the Headquarters of Huawei, a famous information and communications technology company in Shenzhen, China.

During the visit, Mr Adeniyi discussed opportunities embedded in Nigeria Customs Service Trade Modernisation Project as part of his official visit to the People’s Republic of China for the 6th Global AEO Conference that took place in the city of Shenzhen last week.

Stating the purpose of his visit to the company’s office on behalf of his team, CGC Adeniyi said, “We are also delighted to associate the Global Leader Technology Services through the Team of Trade Modernization.”

The Reporters recalls that the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) had, during the Huawei Connect 2023 held in Shanghai in October 2023, expressed readiness to deploy some of the company’s latest products for use in its trade modernisation project.

The CGC, who urged Huawei’s company leadership to sustain their digitalisation services to NCS, also sought their support to collaborate with the Nigeria Customs Service to maintain their transformative journey with the company.

Responding, Xujing Xu, the Huawei Company’s Vice President of Smart Transportation, welcomed the delegation led by CGC Adewale Adeniyi and the Management Team of the Trade Modernization Project (TMP) Limited, led by Chairman Saleh Ahmadu.

He expressed confidence that their collaboration would benefit all parties involved, noting that “the foundational work for this transformation is already underway.”

The TMP Chairman, Saleh Ahmadu, during his address, stated that Huawei is living up to expectations to deliver its mandate under the auspices of Trade Modernization Project Limited.

He appreciated the support accorded him by the CGC and his management team towards the success of the NCS Trade Modernization Project.

Meanwhile, in a bid to upscale the level of NCS modernisation, the Comptroller-General of Customs, alongside members of the Trade Modernization Project led by Chairman Saleh Ahmadu, visited Lantan Port to witness the level of automation and technological solutions provided by Huawei and other tech partners.

In a related development, a training programme, on Trends and Digital Solutions for Customs officials and the Trade Modernization Project (TMP) team, was organised by Huawei on Thursday, May 9, 2024, which focused on equipping officials with the necessary skills to navigate the digital landscape of modern trade.

Furthermore, the entourage of the Comptroller-General of Customs and the TMP Chairman received another training on Business Management with the theme “The Journey of Huawei’s Continuous Growth”.

The training, according to the facilitator, was aimed at paving ways for NCS to enhance the capacity of officials to manage trade facilitation in Nigeria.
