Today, in the premises of the Ministry of Interior, Minister Oliver Spasovski and the Director of the Public Security Bureau Sasho Tasevski had a working meeting with Customs Director General Slavica Kutirov and representatives of the Customs Administration.

 

Customs Director General Kutirov informed the Minister Spasovski about the successful functioning of the interoperability, i.e. the exchange of information and data between the two institutions which is essential, particularly at the border crossing points.

They also discussed the conditions for import of foreign vehicles, where the legal privilege for 50% customs duties ended on 21st June 2021. If any vehicle that has been previously imported and for which customs duties have been paid has not registered within the mentioned deadline, it shall be subject to a request for subsequent collection of customs duties in order for that vehicle to be registered.

To ensure effective operationalization of the new Sector for Special Investigative Measures, the need for amendments to the Law on the Customs Administration was stressed at the meeting, requesting support from the Ministry of Interior in implementing the novelties in the overall operation of this sector that will be closely related to the work of the Ministry of Interior.

Minister Spasovski requested from the Customs Administration to increase the number of customs officers at the border crossing points, particularly in times of greater frequency and to intensify the cooperation between police and customs officers for better coordination and information sharing, and thus even more successful fight against corruption. Spasovski emphasized the need for reconstruction and renovation of the border crossing facilities to ensure better working conditions, and modernization of the Macedonian border crossings. Spasovski and Kutirov also discussed the enhancement of the functioning at One Stop Shop at the border crossing point Tabanovce.

Minister Spasovski stressed that in the coming period it is necessary to intensify the investments in material and technical conditions, since only motivated officials can further improve the functioning of border crossing points and fight against crime and corruption.
