International Initiatives

U.S. Customs and Border Protection coordinates and supports foreign initiatives, programs and activities with our external partners around the world.

CBP focuses on international cooperation and strengthening multi- and bi-lateral relationships to achieve international agreements and joint efforts that both facilitate and secure legitimate trade and travel. CBP strives to protect U.S. borders from beyond by implementing programs and initiatives that promote anti-terrorism, global border security, non-proliferation, export controls, immigration and capacity building.

CBP promotes expansion of the World Customs Organization Framework of Standards for supply chain security and facilitation by providing targeted countries with training and advisory support through programs such as capacity building and Export Control and Border Security.
