A Significant Milestone in Collaboration on Security and Trade Facilitation Between the Two Countries

CMAA-GabonThe United States signed a Customs Mutual Assistance Agreement (CMAA) with Gabon marking a significant milestone in collaboration on security and trade facilities between the two countries. The United States how now signed 76 CMAAs with other customs administrators across the world. CMAAs serve as foundational documents for subsequent information sharing agreements, including mutual recognition arrangements on authorized economic operator programs.

From the U.S. Department of Justice:

"The United States has now signed 76 CMAAs with other customs administrations across the world. CMAAs are bilateral agreements between countries and enforced by their respective customs administrations (for the United States this is CBP and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement). They provide the legal framework for the exchange of information and evidence to assist countries in the enforcement of customs laws, including duty evasion, trafficking, proliferation, money laundering, and terrorism-related activities. CMAAs also serve as foundational documents for subsequent information sharing arrangements, including mutual recognition arrangements on authorized economic operator programs."
