From March 11 to 15, the EU-funded Border Management Programme in Central Asia (BOMCA 10) organised a technical assistance mission in Tajikistan to support the national authorities of the republic in updating National Border Management Strategy (which expires in 2025) and its Action Plan.

During the programme activity, EU and international border security practices and modern cooperation mechanisms were presented. Moreover, the mission analysed domestic developments in the field of border security in Tajikistan, as well as reviewing the recommendations of the Assessment Mission performed within BOMCA phase 9.

Upon completion of this technical assistance mission, taking in account the results of the meetings with governmental agencies, the expert team will develop the recommendations for future National Border Management Strategy and the related Action Plan for its implementation.

The mission was organised in the framework of the Programme’s Component 1, “Institutional Development of Border Control Agencies”, and aims to further develop and strengthen the institutional capacities of border control agencies in Central Asian countries to achieve international standards and best practices in ensuring national, regional and global security.
