Global supply chain security and border security management systems were topics discussed yesterday at a meeting between the leaders of the General Directorate of French Customs and Excise and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They also emphasized the importance of bilateral cooperation on mutual border security issues.
CBP Commissioner Alan D. Bersin welcomed the French representatives-Customs and Excise General Director Jérôme Fournel, Director of International Relations Jean Francois Dutheil and Customs Attaché Francois Richard-at CBP's Washington, D.C., headquarters.
During their U.S. stay, the delegation will visit the CBP National Targeting Center-Cargo and tour CBP's operations on the Southwest border. French Customs is interested in learning more about the high-technology systems and other capabilities used to enforce border security.
