On 13-15 December, customs officials from Belarus will visit Finland to learn about the country’s experience in counteracting corruption risks while carrying out customs checks and services.
The visit has been organised by the European Commission’s Technical Assistance and Information Exchange Instrument (TAIEX) in cooperation with Finnish Customs.
During the three-day visit, participants from Belarus will learn about Finnish customs administration, internal control and audit, and risk management. They will also hear about remedy procedures for the general public and penalties in place to tackle the breach of official duties at Finnish customs.
TAIEX is a demand-driven tool that supports partner countries with the adaptation of national laws, regulations and quality standards to match those of EU Member States in the framework of Cooperation or Association Agreements signed with the EU. In the Eastern Neighbourhood, TAIEX works with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
