Das says protecting borders, revenue collection and facilitating legitimate trade and travel is a challenge for all customs administration and there is a greater need to establish a holistic approach to overcome these challenges.

Australian High Commissioner to Fiji, John Feakes while opening the training said Australia has partnered with both the World Customs Organization and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime to deliver the Container Control Programme.

This is a globally recognised product which is currently assisting over 50 countries in the fight against transnational crime.

Feakes says the Container Control Programme in Fiji will be further enhanced through the provision of a specialised Cargo Targeting System, developed by the World Customs Organization .

FRCS CEO Das says the Cargo Targeting System will enable them to track any risks entering our borders.
