On September 29 the Revenue Service of Georgia will celebrate the activation of the export control licensing software system, called "Tracker." The U.S. Embassy Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) program donated Tracker equipment, software and training, worth about GEL 450,000, to the Government of Georgia.

Georgia and is a defense against the illegal international movement of military
weapons, dual use commodities, and nuclear material. The Deputy Ministers of
the above-named ministries will attend the event as will the U.S. Embassy Chargé d'Affaires, Kent Logsdon. The
donation of the "Tracker" system is yet one more effort by the U.S. Government
to help Georgia to protect its citizens while enabling efficient monitoring of
commerce at its borders.
