"The authorized economic operator is a new concept and modernization of the customs and foreign trade operations that stems as a reform from the Berlin Process and Protocol 5 of the CEFTA and inclusion of Macedonian companies in the regional and global supply chains. These integration processes result in a active strengthening of the regional economy, exactly through concepts such as the authorized economic operator, joint customs and border controls, common risk analysis profiles and information exchange. Being a holder of an authorized economic operator certificate will mean for companies that they meet the economic and security standards in doing foreign trade" pointed Prime Minister Zaev in his statement.

The Director General of the Customs Administration pointed out that Evropa AD is the first factory that is granted the status of Authorized Economic Operator, but three more AEO authorizations are pending, while a dozen of other companies have announced submission of requests.

"By gaining the status of AEO the Macedonian companies, besides the advan-tages they would have in the customs area of the Republic of Macedonia, they will be able to obtain the same benefits in all CEFTA parties, i.e. possibility for greater use of simplified customs procedures, priority treatment in customs controls, physical and documentary controls by the customs authorities, choice of the control location, as well as other direct and indirect benefits. All of this should contribute to reducing customs clearance time, reducing import and export costs, increasing competitiveness and greater integration of Macedonian companies on regional and European markets. It should contribute to increase their professionalism, entrepreneurial spirit and financial capacities, "stressed Director Tanasoski

He added that besides AEO, the introduction of the new system for electronic processing of customs declarations will mean introduction of the concept of digital Customs, opening possibilities for favorable customs environment and growth of production, exports and investments.
