We are pleased to have Mr. Frieder Mecklenburg ‘Adviser Trade Facilitation’ at GIZ’s economic development programme SEDIN, which is co-funded by the EU as the special guest speaker. GIZ is the official German development agency. Frieder advises Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and the Federal Ministry of Finance on tariff and trade policy. His work involves conceptualising and co-authoring of studies, and design and organisation of workshops and trainings on topics such as: implementing the new ECOWAS Common External Tariff (CET); regional trade integration in ECOWAS; trade policy and facilitation in Nigeria. His trustful working relationship with NCS made Frieder a point of reference for the diplomatic community when it comes to dealing with and understanding of customs issues.
