The reforms undertaken at the level of the Directorate General of Customs (DGD) mainly concern the modernization of customs procedures and the optimization of the fight against fraud.

In this regard, it is worth noting : 

  • the extension of the transit surveillance to transit by rail between Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina Faso to improve transit security ;
  • the interconnection of the customs computer systems of Côte d’Ivoire and Niger for road and rail shipments (to strengthen and secure inter-state transit) ;
  • the acquisition and deployment of non-intrusive means, notably scanners ;
  • the implementation of a video surveillance system at the border offices of NOE, TAKIKRO and NIABLE ;
  • the implementation of an Authorized Economic Operator program.

The efforts deployed will be strengthened with the adoption of the new Customs Code, the provision of surveillance services with nautical means, the development of decision support and artificial intelligence tools
