The WCO experts shared their experience and best practices, while the representatives of intellectual property rights of companies Nivea, Sanofi, Puma, Adidas, Nike, Louis Vuitton, Hewlett-Packard, and others, held theoretical and practical presentations on how to recognize counterfeits.

The practical part of the workshop was held at Belgrade’s Airport, the customs warehouse, the United Parcel Service (UPS) warehouse and the main post office.
