Brexit, e-commerce and all kinds of developments in customs were the main topics at the 13th edition of the National Customs Congress held at the WTC Rotterdam on 11 October 2018.
Today, experts speakers from the Netherlands and other European countries discussed how to potentially deal with non-European e-commerce, latest developments in the Brexit negotiations and the upcoming Brexit customs challenges. In addition, a e-commerce panel discussion, led by moderator Roelof Hemmen, took place between Prof. Walter de Wit, Prof. Albert Veenstra and Prof. Dr. Yao-Hua Tan. The panel discussions’ topic was about how the new European e-commerce laws, legislations, logistics and IT need to interact and collaborate but also how these sometimes conflict with each other.
During the day, various breakout sessions take place next to the various key-notes speakers divided over three different sessions. You were able to participate in the various sessions with different topics mainly about e-commerce and Brexit of course.
