CGCE collects $2.4bn in custom revenue in first nine months of 2019

The General Department of Customs and Excise (GDCE) collected almost $2.4bn in custom revenue in the first nine months of 2019, a 35% increase compared to the same period last year. The revenue is equivalent to 106% of the government’s target for the whole year, according to Kun Nhem, GDCE director-general. The main sources of revenue were imports of vehicles and machinery, accounting for 52% of total revenue; energy and petroleum, 17%; and construction material. Reforms implemented by GDCE that have strengthened the body’s internal governance and increasing awareness from payers regarding their tax obligations have contributed to the growth, Nhem said.
