Japan presents scanning equipment for customs checkpoints to Uzbekistan
http://en.trend.az of 11/16/2012 - The Japanese government has presented X-ray scanning equipment worth 360 million yen ($4.5 million) to Uzbekistan for screening freight trains at customs checkpoints on the border of Uzbekistan and neighbouring countries, Azerbaijani State Customs Committee (SCC) told Trend on Thursday.
The equipment is being presented as free assistance from the Japanese government and will be installed at Galaba railway station in the Surkhandarya region (south of Uzbekistan), where the risk of an influx of drugs and other illegal goods from Afghanistan and Tajikistan is high.
Installation of the new equipment will allow a quick and reliable system of customs control of freight wagons that will ensure better protection of the economic interests of the country, the State Customs Committee believes.
Earlier x-ray scanning equipment for the inspection of cars at the Ayriton customs post in the Surkhandarya region and the Oybek customs post in Tashkent region was presented as part of this cooperation.
