During the ceremony, the prime minister, the minister of Finance, the director-general of the Customs and officials from the General Directorate of the Customs will make addresses on several topics.
The topics deal with customs activities, including the digital transition, the accompanying measures for economic operators and the contribution of customs in the economic recovery plan.
