‘‘It is our hope that once that platform is put in place, latest in two years, every activity in Customs will be paperless and digital. That is why we have been notifying our officers that everybody must know how to manipulate Computer, otherwise, in the next two years, anybody that cannot handle computer is out of custom.’’
