MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
October 25, 2021 is the Day of the Customs Officer of the Russian Federation.
Congratulations to the personnel, employees and veterans of the customs service on their professional holiday and the 30th anniversary of the FCS of Russia.
The customs business in our country has existed for more than one century and traces its history back to the Trade Regulations of 1653, which laid the foundation for the formation of a unified customs system in our country. The year 1991 became a new stage in the development of the service. At this time, the country was undergoing global reforms, the transition to a market economy, the liberalization of foreign economic activity, which required the creation of a new system of customs authorities. The decisive role in this was played by the State Customs Committee of Russia.
All these years, the employees of the department have been reliably protecting the national interests of the country, strengthening the economic security of the state. They also effectively solve the problem of suppressing the smuggling of strategic resources, prohibited substances and materials, weapons. They do everything to ensure that counterfeit products that are dangerous to the health of our citizens do not enter the domestic market of the country.
The Federal Customs Service confidently copes with the tasks assigned to it, is developing dynamically, and is a leader in the implementation of high technologies and digitalization. This makes it possible to improve the quality, efficiency and convenience of customs clearance, and to make administration processes transparent.
Dear friends! The great achievements of the FCS of Russia are the work of a team of many thousands, high-class professionals, competent, purposeful and responsible. I would like to express special gratitude to the veterans who stood at the origins of the creation of the service. Your dedication will always be an example for the younger generation of customs officials.
On this festive day, I sincerely wish you new successes, good health, happiness and prosperity.
Happy professional holiday!
