Speaking to ANGOP on the role of forwarding agents in domestic economy, the economist spoke of the need for the agent to know the entire services chain of operators with whom they work.

He stressed that the forwarding agents facilitate, through the service they provide, the relationship of importers and exporters with customs, tax offices, notaries, banks and other entities.

It is also their responsibility to observe and enforce the administrative requirements and law.

On the other hand, said the expert, the forwarding agent is a guide or customs consultant for operators, who acts in the field of import and export and plays an important role in the economy.

He noted that these professionals have contributed to the increase in customs revenue and encourage the observance of customs procedures by operators engaged in import and export activity.

Osvaldo Luis da Silva underlined that the Angolan Government updated the Customs Tariff to promote domestic production and sustainable economic development of the country.

The entry into force of this law does not cause any inconvenience to the work performed by the forwarding agents, he said.

On the other hand, added the economist, the law has come at a good time and is satisfactorily facilitating their work.
