Georgia: EU and IOM share body language skills with revenue service officers
Two experts from Italy visited Georgia last week to share their knowledge and skills on body language with 20 Georgian revenue service officers. Developed in the framework of the the EU-funded project for ‘Reinforcing the Capacities of the Government of Georgia in Border and Migration Management’ (More for More), implemented by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in Georgia, the training course aims to highlight the subtleties of assessing the body language of people moving through border checkpoints.
Part of the course took place on location at Tbilisi International Airport as flights arrived from China, Russia, Austria and the UAE, the IOM said in a press release.
“We are pleased that more of our frontline officers have benefited from this highly relevant and practical training course,” said Irina Sigua from Georgia’s Revenue Service International Relations Department.
