Luanda — The country's 79 Customs offices will be equipped with the Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA World) by the year 2019, a technological tool that facilitates trade, reduces costs and bureaucracy.

He then revealed that twelve southern African countries are already using the ASYCUDA World system, a technical device that has been bringing new dynamics into regional trade.
