The meetings began with a study tour of best digital practices of the Customs Convention on the International Transport of Goods under Cover of TIR Carnets (TIR) at the Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan border crossing point followed by in-depth discussions and dialogue focused on the enhancement of Central Asia – Pakistan and Central Asia – Trans-Caspian Digital TIR trade routes.
