The Verkhovna Rada has ratified an agreement between the governments of Ukraine and the Republic of Tunisia on cooperation and mutual assistance in customs matters.
As the representative of the Cabinet of Ministers in the Verkhovna Rada Taras Melnichuk said in the Telegram channel, the corresponding decision was made at a parliament meeting on Friday.
It is noted that the purpose of the bill is the ratification of the said agreement, the entry into force of which will create legal grounds for resolving issues of cooperation and mutual assistance in customs matters between Ukraine and the Republic of Tunisia.
The document, in particular, provides for the provision of mutual administrative assistance in the customs area in order to counter customs offenses and prevent them.
“The signing of the intergovernmental Ukrainian-Tunisian Agreement on cooperation and mutual assistance is extremely important in the context of the development of relations between Ukraine and Tunisia, both in customs and in general,” Melnichuk wrote.
