ArmInfo. In 2020, the volume of revenues to the state budget of Armenia from customs duties will increase by 15%. Shushanik Nersisyan, deputy chairman of the  State Revenue Committee of the Republic of Armenia, stated this at a  press conference in Yerevan on February 14.  According to her, 2019  was very successful in terms of customs duties. Even if we exclude  the collection factor from car imports, all the same, the customs  authorities recorded according to the results last year, the growth  of customs duties.

An important factor, according to her, is also revenues from the  budget of the Eurasian Economic Union, in which Armenia's share is  1.22%. Shushanik Nersisyan noted that the republic, as a rule,  received more funds from the Union budget than it supplied. However,  in 2018-2019. there is a tendency to increase payments by the  Armenian side to the budget of the EAEU countries, which, on the one  hand, is evidence of an improvement in the quality of administration,  and on the other, of honest relations with partners from the Eurasian  Economic Union. In addition to December of last year, in all the  other months, Armenia constantly increased the volume of receipts in  the Union budget, the Deputy Chairman of the SRC emphasized.

She also noted that in the last 1.5 years there has been an increase  in the number of business entities engaged in export operations. So,  if in 2018 5,500 entities were officially registered, then a year  later this figure increased to 12,200 (an increase of 120%). Only in  2018, the number of subjects of foreign economic activity increased  by 4 thousand. These figures, as Shushanik Nersisyan noted, indicate  that the number of subjects of foreign economic activity is growing  in proportion to the growth of the country's economy.  The growth of  foreign economic activity is also evidenced by the fact that if in  108 customs authorities of the country recorded 570 thousand  registrations, then by the end of 2019, this figure had increased by  50%, amounting to 900 thousand registrations.

Competition has also increased in the market of customs brokerage  services. If 50-60 customs brokers were registered two years ago,  then by the end of 2018, this number has doubled. This form of  services, as noted by the deputy chairman of the CGD, has been  liberalized, and there are no artificial obstacles to obtaining a  license by any individual or legal entity. True, as Shushanik  Nersisyan noted, this area is still not up to par and needs to be  improved.
