Timor-Leste DG Visit


On Friday 22nd Nov 2013 Professor David Widdowson, Associate Professor Stephen Muller and CCES COO Brian Hurrell met with the Director General of Timor-Leste Customs Service Ms Brigida de Silva, and Strategic Advisor Mr Tony O’Connor at the CCES office in Canberra. Discussions centred on the comprehensive training and education program that CCES has been supporting in Timor-Leste for the past two years, as well as future requirements. Also discussed was the possibility of sending a group of Timor-Leste Customs officers to Canberra for English language training, followed by full-time study in the new Bachelor of Border Management. CCES has enjoyed a long and productive relationship with Timor-Leste Customs, and is impressed by the way in which the administration is progressing its comprehensive program of reform and modernisation.
