Representatives of the Customs Administration met today with members and the chairwoman of the State Commission for Prevention of Corruption, Ms. Biljana Ivanovska and confirmed the joint vision for a more effective system for prevention and suppression of corruption. Customs Director General Sugareski presented the regular and future activities of the customs organizational unit for professional standards, emphasizing the visible results so far and the identified future actions, in line with the Strategy of the Customs Administration for Integrity and Anti-Corruption for the period 2019-2022.

 
The cooperation between the two institutions is particularly evident in the participation of the Customs Administration in the preparation of strategic national documents for prevention and repression of corruption and conflict of interests, as well as in the participation in IPA projects in the area of anti-corruption action and strengthening of the capacities engaged in this joint fight.

The Customs Administration has provided access to the database (LUKA software, asset declaration module) for access to the asset declarations and statements of interests of the employees of the Customs Administration.

The constant communication between the Customs Administration and the SCPC enables signaling of possible cases of misuse of official powers and unprofessional conduct by the employees of the Customs Administration.

Following the adoption of the National Programme for Combating Corruption and Conflict of Interest with an Action Plan for Implementation, closer cooperation between these institutions will be necessary. The activities under direct jurisdiction of Customs will be regularly reported to the SCPC in terms of their implementation, with permanent monitoring of the performance indicators and progress made in the fight against corruption and conflict of interest.

The focus on raising the awareness of the public and the business community on the harmful consequences of corruption that undermines the legitimacy and trust in state institutions remains high on the agenda.
