Border Security Asia

SMi proudly presents the launch of its inaugural Border Security Asia Pacific conference and exhibition which will be held in Singapore on the 30th & 31st January 2012. The conference offers you the opportunity to hear the latest regional Maritime Border Protection Programmes and assess how different regional agencies are securing maritime borders and coastlines.

Effective border security is a major challenge across the Asia Pacific. Critical, “daily” issues involving criminal activities, include drug trafficking, the smuggling of weapons and other illegal contraband, and human trafficking. In addition, there is always the issue of security from terrorist attacks which is certainly a major concern that drives many border security considerations.

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet and network with a diverse mixture of international experts from the Border Security community. Taking part in this event will ensure you are kept fully up-to-date with the latest challenges, threats and solutions ensuring you stay at the forefront of this important sector.

Border Security Asia Pacific is being organised in association with Borderpol, the World Border Organization. This partnership will explore the current threats and challenges facing the regional border management community – from the experiences of national border agencies to the problems and solutions facing policy makers.
