Customs is critical to international trade and security. While clearing goods at EU borders, it plays an equally important role in assuring safety, fighting fraud and securing revenue. The efficiency of customs procedures significantly affects a country or region's economic competitiveness and stimulates growth in trade and cross-border commerce. Streamlining EU customs to make it easier, faster and more uniform will improve Europe's economy.
