On 29 September, the Georgian Border Police received ten trucks, funded by the EU and procured by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), with a total value of €790,000, according to the European Union in Georgia's statement published today.
The donation of 10 trucks with short wheelbase, able to access localities with extremely rugged terrain will positively boost the Border Police’s capabilities to supply their border guards in remote green border areas. Ultimately, utilisation of these vehicles will reduce the supply costs and ensure logistical effectiveness and efficiency of border units at the green border.
The vehicles were handed over as part of the ‘Border and Migration Management Action for Georgia (BMMAG)’ project, launched in 2022 under the EU Resilience Facility. The activity aims to support the Georgian government in sustaining more effective border management and migration governance.
