Today is the Customs Officer's Day. To commemorate the holiday, customs recruits swore an oath of allegiance at the State Flag Square in Minsk. Almost half of them received diplomas with distinction. For more than a quarter of a century of work, the state customs body has become one of the most effective mechanisms for ensuring the country's economic security and state regulation of foreign trade. Since the beginning of the year, the amount of payments collected by the agency amounted to more than $3.25 billion. This is a third more than for 8 months of the last year.
