Azerbaijan, Türkiye and Georgia sign agreement on custom procedures simplification

A meeting of a Trilateral Committee on Customs Issues between the governments of Azerbaijan, Türkiye and Georgia was held on August 18.

At the meeting, an agreement between the parties was signed on the exchange of primary information to simplify transit customs procedures within the framework of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway project.

The purpose of the agreement is to implement the electronic exchange of primary information to simplify customs procedures for goods transported in transit within the framework of the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway project through the territory of all three countries.

The agreement will create important opportunities in terms of timely and efficient transportation of goods by the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway connecting the trans-European and trans-Asian railway corridors. Thus, with the organization of electronic exchange of primary information about goods, customs procedures will be simplified, and border crossing processes will be accelerated. At the same time, due to mutually agreed modern methods of customs control, time will be saved, which will create conditions for the comfortable movement of goods.

The agreement, which is also important in terms of increasing the attractiveness of transport corridors, will have a positive impact on increasing logistics opportunities for economic operators, and seaports and will play an important role in further expanding the transit potential.
