In recognition of International Customs Day, celebrated yearly, on January 26, the Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) will once again host Customs Week from January 20- 26, 2019, under the theme: “Smart Borders for Seamless Trade, Travel and Transport”.

As is customary, the agency, will on Sunday, January 20, kick-start its week of activities, with church services in the parishes of Kingston & St Andrew, St James and St Ann.

Other activities that will be held during the course of the week are the Staff Recognition Ceremony, Customer Service Appreciation Day (Kingston and Montego Bay) and the production of newspaper supplements in the two major papers.

The flagship event for the week will be the inaugural staging of 'Information Communication Technology (ICT) Day' which will get underway with an opening ceremony starting at 10:00 am at the agency's head office, in Kingston.

The key highlight of the day will be the launch of a Virtual Reality Room which will allow stakeholders to have a virtual 'walk-through' of various Customs processes and procedures at our air and sea ports.

The hosting of ICT Day under the theme “Connecting the Dots” is in keeping with the JCA's thrust to recognise ICT as a key enabler in the business and operational functions of the agency, and is critical to propelling the JCA to become a world-class Customs entity.
