The Kobero/Kabanga border crossing is currently characterised by outdated infrastructure, complicated procedures focused on centralized control by multiple border agencies working in isolation and low border agency capacity. Low levels of understanding of import and export procedures by traders and border staff results in delays and poor standards management. Delays increase transportation costs for traders.
The project focuses on setting up the institutional and legal framework necessary for collaboration in border management at inter-agency and bilateral levels, reviewing and implementing one stop border post procedures, training border agency officials, and installing ICT networks, hardware, furniture and equipment.
TMEA is providing funding for the development of an integrated border management platform and is supporting the lead agencies to implement the project on time and ensure quality.
