U.S. Customs and Border Protection has signed separate customs mutual assistance agreements with Bolivia and Georgia, bringing the agency’s total number of such pacts to 79.

CMAAs provide the legal framework for the exchange of information and evidence to assist countries in the enforcement of customs laws, including with respect to duty evasion, trafficking, proliferation, money laundering, and terrorism-related activities. CMAAs also serve as foundational documents for subsequent information sharing arrangements, including mutual recognition arrangements on authorized economic operator programs.
