Georgia and Turkey create digital link with e-TIR
Georgia and Turkey have taken a significant step in strengthening the digital link between the two countries by agreeing to exchange customs data electronically so that transport across their borders will be faster and cheaper. The two countries signed a protocol on electronic data exchange in the framework of a joint e-TIR pilot project.
Turkey and Georgia have long been important trading partners, and the volumes of trade between them are rising. In 2015, 17% of Georgian imports originated from Turkey and the total trade between both counties reached USD 1.5 billion. (ben)
