    Public Monitoring of Customs Authorities Performance: Conclusions and Recommendations


    The Report sets out the findings of the public monitoring of activities of regional customs authorities over the period from June to September 2018. The monitoring was conducted in six regions of Ukraine by public organisations in the form of in-depth interviews held with representatives of key stakeholders in each of those six regions. Public monitoring is a component of advocacy campaigns run by public organisations — winners of the grants competition as part of the Trade Facilitation Dialogue project. 

    The Report contains:

    • evaluation of the business environment;
    • evaluation of performance of customs formalities;
    • a list of essential obstacles to the performance of customs formalities at regional and national levels; and
    • recommendations regarding necessary measures to promote trade procedures facilitation. 

    Such public monitoring of operation of regional customs authorities can serve as an instrument to assess real changes in the national customs policy at regional level.

    This document was prepared within the framework of the "Trade Facilitation Dialogue" project, implemented by the Institute for Economic Research and Policy Consulting with the financial support of the European Union and the International Renaissance Foundation.
