The Law “On ratification of the Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Government of the Republic of Turkey on the organization of information exchange and simplification of customs control procedures” is aimed at increasing the efficiency and reducing the time for customs control through electronic exchange of information on goods and vehicles moving between the two countries.
