We are bidding the year of the horse and receiving the year of the sheep. Last year we have taken important steps towards launching paperless clearance, changing the technological procedure of the customs clearance, conducting price survey near the borders, making the prices of import vehicles transparent and publicly available, facilitating international trade through making the customs value transparent and through conducting control during the assessment of the customs duties, and saving time and costs of the traders.

This is a huge success. Thank you. The time does not wait for anyone and will pass at its own rate and our duty to compete with time to further enhance the level we have come to without losing any opportunity and to continue to uphold the reputation of our customs organizations...

We have announced the year of the sheep to be a year for “enhancing the customs and business cooperation.” Under this objective, many activities await us such as expanding the online clearance, introducing the e-payment system, advancing the authorized economic operators, and to organize meetings and seminars actively.

We can do it. This is faith! Best of luck! I wish you the customs officers and our veteran customs officers of Mongolia happiness for your family, in your lives, success and optimism in your dreams and in your work and I wish that all your wishes will come true and your lives will be filled with peace and wisdom. Happy Lunar New Year.

Dedicated to the veteran customs officers from all generations in celebration of the

International Customs Day.

International Customs Day to all our veteran customs officers who have dedicated their hearts and souls to the Mongolian Customs! We are forever grateful and proud for the current image, development, success and achievements are inseparable from your work and life history.

In 2014, we have initiated and implemented various measures in an attempt to further facilitate trade, which were appreciated by the customers and helped them save their time and money. These measures included: making customs value and valuation publicly available and transparent online on specific commodities, automating export clearance procedure on certain commodities, harmonizing the manifests, improving the inspection equipment, decreasing the number of steps required for customs clearance.

On the other hand, in order to enhance the customs reform, we have been paying special attention to creating positive mindset in all the customs stakeholders. Moreover, we endeavored to raise the reputation of the Mongolian Customs internationally and collaborated closely with customs organizations of Russia, China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Azerbaijan, India, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan as well as international financial and development organizations. As a result of our efforts, Mongolian Customs has shown improved results on various evaluations, assessment and surveys.

For instance, in the assessment of the Anti-corruption agency regarding the measures carried out by 50 government organizations, Mongolian Customs ranked 12th in 2014, an significantly increased result compared to the 48th place in 2013. American chamber of commerce in collaboration with the Business Plus Initiative funded by USAID and Sant-Maral research center conducted its annual survey on the organizations that hinder businesses and Mongolian Customs was scored 4.2, which is thrice less than the score of 2013.

The World Customs Organization has announced the year 2015 to be a year of “Coordinated border management – an inclusive approach for connecting stakeholder.” Therefore, we are confident that various measures will be initiated and implemented in this area and that our customs officers will realize the emergence of a year that require us to further enhance the work we have started and to fulfill the state budget revenue plan and will carry out their duties responsibly. 

I wish you all good health, happiness and long life!
