Government to step up actions to tackle grey economy with new strategy and comprehensive action plan – Customs also involved
The Government has adopted a resolution on a strategy and an action plan for tackling the grey economy and economic crime for 2020–2023. The efforts to tackle the grey economy and economic crime will focus on proactive prevention, improving the authorities’ access to information, reviewing administrative powers and improving the cooperation between authorities. Together with other authorities and ministries, Finnish Customs has participated in the preparation of the new strategy and action plan, and will be actively involved in their implementation. Effective prevention of the shadow economy has also been defined as one of Customs’ key social impact objectives and it is closely linked to the various functions of Customs.
