Today, Head of EULEX Customs, Michael Marsden and his deputy Brian Richard gave a presentation to students in the Pjeter Budi University that specialises in customs.
The presentation focused on how EULEX carries out work in the area of customs and how it supports the Kosovo institutions in that field. Mike Marsden said to the students: “I have worked in many international missions and I must say that Kosovo is quite advanced in customs development”.
There was lively discussion and students were curious about a number of customs issues including how financial intelligence is collected. The presenters gave many explanations with examples of the latest customs achievements.
Following the high interest for such exchanges, EULEX will carry out more presentations on customs for this University and continue educational outreach efforts in schools and universities throughout Kosovo in the coming months.
