Jamal Olaimat (Jordan)

Master of International Customs Law and Administration (MICLA) – March, 2011

Assistant Director, main Amman Customs Centre, Jordan Customs

Initially I worked for Jordan Customs, in different customs areas, from Tariff, Rules of Origin to Head of International, all this provided me with wide experience in customs matters, but it was important for me that this was recognized academically after I finished my course in International Customs Law & Administration and upon my return from leave to Jordan Customs I was promoted to Customs Colonel rank and appointed as Assistant Director of main Amman Customs Centre. Also I can say that the course enhanced my understanding of the strategic factors affecting Customs administrations and border management environments, from both the international and domestic perspectives and this has been really useful in my career.

First, I will have this opportunity to congratulate graduates and can say that Alumni network is important in exchange experiences and ideas that foster the recognition of Customs profession internationally.

I remember the words I said after graduation “I am proud to be the first person from the Middle East region to complete this master’s degree”.
