Albania’s Finance Minister, Shkelqim Cani has presented today Pranvera Fagu (Behushi), who has been appointed as general director of Customs.

Minister Cani stopped on the current situation of Albanian customs and the urgent need to change the working method in relation to the collection of custom revenues.

“Revenues have not been collected based on projections and responsibility must be identified for this”, said the minister of Finance.

The minister considered the state of Albanian customs as unacceptable and demanded urgent measures and that maximum efforts must be made in order to identify the causes that have led to a fall in customs revenues.

Meanwhile, the new head of Customs, Pranvera Fagu (Behushi) said that she considers the new position as the head of customs as a challenge and asked her staff to work as a team in order to address the problems identified in the Albanian customs service. /ibna/
