A&A representatives from the Anti-Counterfeiting Department recently travelled to Luanda to conduct a customs training workshop at the behest of the Angolan Economic Police. The focus of the training was on anti-counterfeiting in South Africa and product identification training. The workshop was attended by representatives from Interpol and Angolan government institutions such as Customs and the Ministry of Trade & Industry. The workshop was well attended with more than 55 delegates present and was a great success. Requests have been received from the Economic Police to hold more training workshops next year.
