Coordinated Border Management for Results in Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation: Assessment of Customs and Border Crossing Points for Georgia

Consultants' Reports | December 2017

Georgia has 20,000 km roads (Tsiteli Khidi-Tbilisi-Poti is the trunk road) and 2,089.9 km of railways (capacity of 28 million tons). There are four main seaports. Poti handles the highest tonnage followed by Batumi. There are five main airports. The air cargo carried remains a small amount compared to road, railways and water. Major improvements concerning customs include the creation of Georgia Revenue Service (GRS), which merges customs with tax, SPS, immigration authorities into one; legislation changes that authorizes only two border agencies to operate at the border; and a one stop-shop inland office called customs clearance zones to enable a simplified and convenient way for cargo clearance and collection.

Consultants' reports describe activities by a consultant or group of consultants related to preparing a technical assistance project.
