“With the official launch of the new State Customs Service, more than 500 of the most odious customs officers will not be transferred to the new structure and will be dismissed. This means that in many regions we will be able to decapitate the schemes right now,” - the head of customs said.
According to Nefedov, this is necessary to overcome corruption.
He added that tenders for filling posts in customs will start on December 1.
“But the next step is very important - we need to replace the fired employees with professional and honest people. Because otherwise, everything will quiet down for two or three months, after that someone will organize the same story there ... Please believe us that now it is possible and necessary to work honestly. Go and let the best win, ” - he said.
“Starting next year, we will begin the program to raise the salary of customs officers, so go ahead,” - Nefedov added.
As we reported, Electronic customs in Ukraine can start working in about a year. The State Customs Service Head Maksym Nefedov announced this.
