The Three Member States (Botswana, South Africa, Namibia) have set the 8th Joint Law Enforcement Operations to improve trade facilitation of goods along the Trans Kalahari Corridor. The three member’s states continue to tackle challenges that are experienced along the corridor to promote trade facilitation and seamless movement of goods and passengers on the corridor.

The joint operations are continuous activities of the Trans Kalahari Corridor Secretariat (TKCS) to implement resolutions taken during the previous operations held in the three countries in the past years.

The TKCS among others coordinates the implementation of the TKCMC MoU and SADC Protocol on Transport, coordinate planning and execution of law enforcement operations at regional and national levels and further identify areas of harmonization for onward submission to the TKCS.

Since the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), by the three countries in 2003, the member states continuously improve efficiencies along the TKC through the harmonization of Cross Border Transactions and Customs Procedures.

The TKC is a road network spanning approximately 1900 kilometers across the territories of Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.
