At the end of the meeting, Alexander Ankvab emphasized that the growth of own income was made possible thanks to a systematic approach to the administration of customs and tax payments and a significant decrease in the level of smuggling.

“Now we have to continue this work in a qualified way and mobilize funds for their qualitative distribution for the needs of the state and society,” Ankvab concluded.
