Yesterday, the Director General of Customs Administration had a working meeting with representatives of the USAID Office in Washington and the USAID Office for Economic Development, Governance and Enterprise Growth - EDGE in Skopje. They discussed the benefits of the successful cooperation so far and possible future joint projects.

The Customs Administration presented to the USAID representatives the activities implemented within the initiative Open Balkans and CEFTA: introduction and expansion of green corridors at border crossings, the concept ONE STOP SHOP - joint border controls, mutual recognition of companies with AEO status and the exchange of certificates through the SEED + project on which there has been intensive work recently in order to improve the movement of goods in the international supply chain. The results of the recent Time Release Study show a significant reduction of delays at border crossings.

Last year, the Customs Administration with the support of USAID and the Office for Economic Development successfully implemented the Project for Strengthening the Efficiency of Joint Controls at the Kjafasan Border Crossing, which was implemented in cooperation with the Customs of the Republic of Albania.

The USAID representatives expressed strong support for the activities of the Customs Administration, with special emphasis on opportunities and areas for future cooperation, in order to achieve the goals and strategic priorities for trade facilitation, digitalization and protection of the society.
