The chairman of Armenia’s State Revenue Committee (SRC) Rustam Badasyan traveled today to the Armenian-Georgian border to inaugurate together with Georgian peers the modernized Ninotsminda customs checkpoint.
Badasyan was quoted by SRC as saying that the constructive partnership between Armenia and Georgia includes many important areas of interstate relations, including high-level cooperation in the customs sphere.
“In this context, we attach great importance to the steps aimed at modernizing the customs points operating on the Armenian-Georgian border as an important pledge for the development of trade and economic relations between our countries, improving and facilitating the chain of goods turnover, as well as developing transit opportunities, particularly on the road connecting Armenia to the Black Sea,” he noted.
According to Georgian Ministry of Finance, 11 new exits, equipped with modern control systems for trucks, passengers and cars are available at the customs checkpoint.
About 70 customs officers work at the checkpoint, which is able to process at least 600 trucks, 3,000 cars and 8,000 passengers daily in both directions.
