Fabrice Millet is the Chief of the ASYCUDA Programme, the largest Technical Assistance Programme of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) which has played a major role in the modernization of the Customs Administrations in 100 countries for three decades.
His work focuses on information technology and technological innovations applied to the automation of international trade processes and Customs reform. He has a longstanding involvement in ASYCUDA, playing a leading role in the design and technical development of the third (ASYCUDA++) and fourth (ASYCUDAWorld) generations of the associated software product.
Under his leadership the Programme has promoted trade efficiency through the use of international standards, the development of G2G and G2B solutions for Customs and Other Government Agencies (OGAs). From 2000 to 2010 the Programme has shifted from a north-south cooperation scheme to a south-south model, strongly supporting regional expertise.
