The Ministry of Economy and Finance’s General Department of Customs and Excise of Cambodia (GDCE) has waived the payment of customs broker licence fees for 2021-2022 as the Kingdom’s transport and logistics sectors reel from the sweeping effects of the ever-deepening Covid-19 pandemic.

A letter signed by GDCE director-general Kun Nhem on July 9 noted that the decision was based on a government press release regarding the directive on the ninth round of economic relief measures.

The directive introduced additional measures to mitigate some of the predicted impacts on various sectors strategically important to the national economy during the health crisis, steer recovery on a more sustainable trajectory, and to set the stage for greater economic growth in the Kingdom post-Covid-19, the letter noted.

Customs brokers that paid their licence fees in 2021 are no longer required to pay them in 2023, it said.
