Podlaski Voivode (Podlaskie Voivodeship, Poland)
State Customs Committee of The Republic of Belarus (Minsk Oblast, Belarus)
The implemented project includes actions related to expanding and improving of infrastructure of the border crossing point in Kuźnica Białostocka. The actions are aimed at preventing and counteracting illegal migration, combating smuggling, fighting organized crime, as well as counteracting and eliminating illegal trade in rare and endangered species. The implementation of these actions will contribute to the cross-border effect by more efficient and effective screening of vehicles and goods crossing the border, improving and facilitating border traffic, as well as increasing trade and boosting business contacts on both sides of the border. Shorter and more successful controls results from increased numbers of cleared vehicles, rising the number of people and cars crossing the border.
