On 27th October 2017, representatives of the Customs Administration had a meeting with representatives of the Siracusa International Institute for Criminal Law and Human Rights in Syracuse, regarding the project “Strengthening the fight against illicit trade in South Eastern Europe”.

Under this Project, that began this month, it is planned to conduct the first comprehensive study on the challenges and obstacles in the fight against illicit trafficking in the Republic of Macedonia and in 11 other countries. Numerous partners - ministries, Prosecution authorities, law enforcement agencies and customs services, and academies for training experts in the area of criminal law, will participate in the project that will last for 24 months.  Today's meeting that was held in the premises of the Customs Administration was an opportunity to discuss the activities envisaged by the project, as well as the specific contribution expected by the customs officers.

The project, which is expected to provide an innovative framework for improvement of the cooperation between national institutions, corporations, industry associations, research institutes and civil society organizations, involved in the fight against illicit trafficking, envisages preparation of a national study on the training needs of officials in the domain of criminal law and illicit trade at regional level (shortcomings, needs, best practices).

The findings and recommendations that will arise from this project will be presented at an international conference.
