The WCO has di­vided its mem­ber­ship into six re­gions. Each of the six re­gions is rep­re­sented by a re­gion­ally elected Vice-chair­per­son to the WCO Coun­cil.

Be­ing the Vice Chair of AP Re­gion of WCO will en­able In­dia to take on a lead­er­ship role. In­dia has a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence in pro­mot­ing se­cu­rity and fa­cil­i­ta­tion of cross bor­der trade. WCO rep­re­sents 182 Cus­toms ad­min­is­tra­tions across the globe that col­lec­tively process ap­prox­i­mately 98 per cent of world trade. As the global cen­tre of Cus­toms ex­per­tise, the WCO is the only in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion with com­pe­tence in Cus­toms mat­ters and can rightly call it­self the voice of the in­ter­na­tional Cus­toms com­mu­nity.
