Lukashenko: Customs service should be a pillar of economic security of the state

MINSK, 3 April (BelTA) – The customs service should be one of the key elements of the economic security of the state; it should guarantee efficient control and prevent cross-border crimes, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as met with the senior personnel of the State Customs Committee on 3 April, BelTA has learned.

At the beginning of the meeting the head of state remarked that when appointing new chairman of the State Customs Committee in 2014 he expressed wish to hold such a meeting and to discuss major priorities of work taking into account the fact that in present conditions the customs service should cope with various important tasks and functions.

In this very complicated situation the customs service should be one of the key elements of the economic security of the state, guarantee effective control and prevent cross-border crimes. To fulfill this responsible mission, customs authorities should be an example of probity, loyalty to their service duties,” the head of state stressed.
