The General Directorate of Customs and Indirect Rights of Gabon has commissioned ATIBT to train its agents in the recognition of processed timber as part of the advancement of the « dry port » of Lastourville.
Thanks to the support of UFIGA, SBL and CEB Precious Woods and the financial support of AFD, the training was held from 22 to 24 November in Lastourville during a seminar organized by the customs. This training was a great success, congratulated by Commander Kounda, focal point of the Lastourville Hub during the closing ceremony. This training should be deepened in the course of the first half of 2019 on the theme of cubage. Equivalent training has therefore been requested by other customs poles.
