On September 7-8, PMCG’s representative Mr. Bondo Bolkvadze facilitated a seminar entitled “modernization of customs and transport procedures as a tool to improve transport management and strengthen transport security, especially during emergency situations,” hosted by the OSCE Center in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

During the seminar, Mr. Bolkvadze presented the best practices in the application of digital technologies and intelligent transport systems, harmonization of transport and transit procedures and ensuring sustainable and secure operation of logistic chains, elaborated on his international experience in the effective use of a ‘single window’ mechanism as a tool for more efficient transport and logistics operations, and engaged in discussion with the representatives of the Ministry of Trade and Foreign Economic Affairs, the State Customs Service, state transport agencies, and other key ministries and government bodies.

“Facilitating cross-border transport is a crucial prerequisite for economic development and security. Moreover, ensuring efficient transport networks, and promoting good governance at border crossing points are vital for states to overcome issues, such as lack of access to the sea and dependence on transit services of neighboring countries,” said William Leaf, Officer-in-Charge of the OSCE Centre in Ashgabat.
