During its recent 25th anniversary celebrations in Brussels, Belgium, the International Federation of Customs Brokers (IFCBA) acknowledged those Member Associations serving as IFCBA Managing Directors. Among this term’s Managing Directors is NCBFAA Chairman Darrell Sekin, Jr., who accepted the IFCBA’ s recognition on behalf of the Association.
Coinciding with the anniversary were meetings with the World Customs Organization (WCO) to discuss issues of mutual concern such as customs broker regulation and the important role played by customs brokers in assisting small and medium sized enterprises enter and succeed in the global marketplace. During the talks, IFCBA Chairman Mr. Shantanu Bhadkamkar confirmed the IFCBA’s commitment to further collaboration with the WCO particularly with regard to enhancing the value that customs brokers deliver to their national economies.
“Key to these discussions from the NCBFAA’s perspective was,” according to Chairman Sekin, “’the role of the broker’ and how we remain relevant within the Private Sector Consultative Group in WCO to make sure that we have a real voice in recommendations made by that group.”
