Abstract

The risk of corruption in customs exists in all countries around the world. It is evident that this problem is far more prevalent in developing countries. In developing countries, customs are usually among those administrations where corruption is most entrenched. Customs administrations play a key role in trade facilitation, revenue collection, community protection and national security. The presence of corruption can severely limit Customs capacity to effectively accomplish its mission. The economy of the Republic of Macedonia is highly depended on international trade, especially imports. That results in a very big percent of businesses having direct encounters with customs officers, which gives the opportunity for corruption. According to Corruption Perception Index 2016 three out of five Macedonians perceive customs officers as corrupt. The aim of this paper is to analyze corruption in customs sector and to provide useful conclusions and recommendations in the fight against corruption. Keywords: Customs, Customs Administration, Integrity, Corruption, Republic of Macedonia
