BOMCA supports enhancement of control procedures at Central Asian borders

  • Thematic Component: 3. Facilitation of Trade
  • Country: Kazakhstan

On April 12, the EU-funded Border Management Programme in Central Asia (BOMCA 10) officially handed over specialised equipment to the State Agro-Industrial Complex Inspection Committee and Veterinary Surveillance Committee of the Ministry of Agriculture of Kazakhstan. The total value of the transferred equipment amounted to 33,967.36 EUR.

The beneficiary agencies received 34 chest-mounted video-photo recorders and supporting equipment to record procedures during inspection of goods transported across the border, which at the same time serve as preventive measures against corruption risks at the Kazakh-Uzbek and Kazakh-Kyrgyz borders.

These assets were purchased in the framework of BOMCA 10 Component 3, “Facilitation of Trade” and specifically aimed to improve customs, phyto-sanitary and veterinary checks.
