26 Feb 13. Border Management Summit – Creating a Safe, Secure, and Efficient Border. 25-28 March 2013, Detroit MI, United States. The U.S. Canadian Border is the largest international land border in the entire world. Nearly $1.6bn in trade as well as 300,000 people travel across the border on a daily basis. The U.S. and Canada share a unique relationship, and are focused on a joint effort to protect against terrorism and organized crime, while steadily advancing economic trade and growth, as detailed in the “Beyond the Border” action plan. In order to create a safe, and efficient border, it is imperative that threats are detected and rapidly dealt with, while trade is encouraged and efficiently facilitated. The Border Management North 2013 Summit, will bring together those who have an expertise on the topic of protecting our northern border with those who are seeking to implement it. This year’s summit takes places at an interesting and innovative time in the implementation of border protection technology and management. In order to further explore these new and exciting advancements happening along the U.S. Canadian border this year’s summit will focus on preventing Terrorism, organized crime, trade facilitation, and cross border law enforcement. Join us in discussing advancements on the U.S. Canadian border such as Automated Targeting Systems (ATS), Remote Video Surveillance Systems (RVSS), Maritime Radar Systems, Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), and the “Beyond the Border” action plan, and we can begin to work towards improving the security and efficiency of our shared border.
