Rob Preece CCES, and Dr Mikhail Kashubsky, CCES and Secretary of the International Network of Customs Universities (INCU) participated in events organised under the Sino Australia Customs Culture Exchange program held at the Jingan Library in Shanghai.  Rob and Mikhail presented a number of books to the Library which holds many customs and trade journals, articles and statistics, then participated in a series of lectures.  Mr Chen, a curator at the Jingan Library, presented a history of trade between Australia and Shanghai, noting the special treatment given to imports as both Australia and Shanghai were British colonies. Rob then spoke about the issue of smuggling alcohol and tobacco and the new technologies being developed to combat the problem, whilst Mikhail presented the history of the International Network of Customs Universities.  The event was attended by around 60 people, including a number of officers from the China Customs office in the Shanghai Port.
