ArmInfo. Armenia and Georgia will exchange preliminary electronic information on the international movement of vehicles and goods. The RA National Assembly at its session on September 18 ratified the corresponding Armenian-Georgian protocol, signed in November 2019.
According to the Chairman of the RA State Revenue Committee Edward Hovhannisyan, Yerevan previously signed a similar document with Tehran, which makes it possible to keep an effective record of vehicles and goods in transit through the territory of Armenia. The protocol is aimed at effective risk management and joint use of checkpoints Bagratashen (Armenia) - Sadakhlo (Georgia), Ayrum (Armenia) - Sadakhlo (Georgia), Gogavan (Armenia) - Guguti (Georgia), Bavra (Armenia) - Ninotsminda ( Georgia). The parties to the protocol undertake to notify the latter by e- mail in advance, prior to granting permission to enter the territory of the other party for vehicles and goods. This will also make it possible to effectively monitor cargo and vehicles and reduce the time of their inspection.
