Abstract

Customs Administrations play a key role in trade facilitation, revenue collection, community protection and national security. The issue of corruption is a critical issue for all nations and for all Customs Administrations. 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. The presence of corruption limits Customs capacity to effectively accomplish its goals. 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. Effectively preventing and combating corruption in customs is essential to an enabling business environment and investment climate. The aim of this paper is to analyze corruption in customs sector and to provide useful conclusions and recommendations in the fight against corruption. KEY WORDS: Customs, Customs Administration, Corruption, Republic of Macedonia
