Threats to Ensure Economic Security in the Field of Foreign Economic Activity

Keywords: customs duties, customs tariff, import, export, trade balance, customs offenses, shadow economy in the sphere of foreign economic activity

Federal budget revenues from foreign economic activities have recently tended to decline. In the context of the coronavirus pandemic and increasing payments from the federal budget to support the most affected sectors of the economy and the population, the issues of ensuring sustainability of the income base become most pressing. Methods of statistical analysis were used to explore the topic of research. The article analyzes the dynamics and structure of revenues from foreign economic activity. Analysis of foreign trade turnover is carried out. The increasing role of value-added tax on goods imported into the country with a decrease in export customs duties is revealed. The illegal, including criminal, foreign economic activity causes significant damage to the national interests in the sphere of the economy, acting as one of the most serious threats to the economic security of Russia, as evidenced by the statistics of criminal cases initiated on customs offenses and the amount of additional accrued customs payments. The study concludes on the need to improve inter-country cooperation on customs issues to prevent possible threats to the economic security of the country.
