PRESENTATION

I have been elected by the European Union and its Member States as their sole and common candidate for the position of Secretary General of the World Customs Organization. I am strongly committed and prepared to take on the new challenges and lead a project that allows us to maintain the high level of the WCO and move forward.

Together we can make the difference!
