Additional Information

The Polish Ministry of Finance is working on the reorganisation of the internal revenue structure. According to Iwona Fołta, chair of the Federation of Customs Workers Trade Unions, the reorganisation may lead to some 10000 members of the customs service being made redundant. The Polish government has closed many customs offices at the country's borders after joing the European Union.
