Full interaction expected
The Chairman of the State Customs Committee, Alexander Shpilevsky, has met the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Serbia to Belarus, H.E. Mr. Stojan Jevtic, to sign an agreement on mutual assistance in customs matters. The document establishes goals, principles and procedures for the provision of mutual assistance and allows for close interaction across the most important aspects of customs co-operation — including in the field of law enforcement and confirmation of customs value.
According to the State Customs Committee, the agreement would bring co-operation between the customs bodies of Belarus and Serbia to a new level. This is especially important as bilateral trade is growing between our two states, following an intergovernmental agreement on free trade.
Belarus has now signed two multilateral international agreements within the CIS and the Customs Union, in addition to 15 bilateral international agreements on co-operation and mutual assistance in customs affairs: with Azerbaijan, Italy, Iran, Libya, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Vietnam, Slovakia, Turkey, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Ukraine, Finland and Turkmenistan.
