We work together with the inspections both at the border crossings and in the inland customs offices. The cooperation should intensify and enhanced to ensure greater quality, noted Customs Director General Sugareski at today's meeting with the Market Inspectorate Director Mr. Stojko Paunovski.

The Directors agreed that effective market supervision is necessary to ensure protection of the health and safety of consumers, protection of their economic interests and the environment.

The future activities between the two institutions were reviewed at the meeting, with the aim of increasing the effectiveness and coordination.  Emphasis was put on the seriousness of the problem and the damage extent caused by illicit trade in tobacco and tobacco products. 

This requires continued efforts of both the two institutions to prevent the illegal trade in excise goods. This way not only do we protect competition and the tax evasion, but we further contribute to protecting the health of people who can not be threatened with the use of untested products released on the market illegally.  

Due to the enormous damage illicit sales of finely cut tobacco cause to the state, the Customs Administration in coordination with the Market Inspectorate and the National Coordinating Center for Suppression of Organized and serious crime, Bureau of Public Security Ministry of Interior and other relevant state institutions take continuous actions to suppress the illegal sale of tobacco and tobacco products.
