Making borders smarter and safer: Current challenges and investment trends

It is becoming increasingly more difficult for border agencies to manage efficient and safe borders, as the international climate and the ever-growing passenger flow is putting extra strain on their decreasing budget. Cutting edge technology and infrastructure solutions are deemed crucial to address these challenges.

Ahead of this year’s Smarter Border Management conference, we surveyed experts from around the world ad across all types of sectors, including Government Agencies, Multi-National Organisations and Aviation. They share their insight on their plans to increase the efficiency and safety of their borders.
