The SuperKEKB collider and the Belle II experiment started Phase III at the beginning of 2019. The run is designed to collect a data sample of up to 50/ab at the collision energy of the Upsilon(4S) resonance for the next decade. The Belle II software library is created to ensure the accuracy and efficiency needed to
accomodate this next generation B factory experiment.

The central component of the Belle II simulation library is Geant4, which is one of the most popular software packages used by high energy experiments. In this talk, we will summarize the current status of the simulation library and will review the efforts to optimize the Geant4 functionalities in the Belle II specific environment. The discussed topics will include the optimization of the physics list and upgrade to Geant4 version 10.5.
