The world’s borders are under enormous pressure. Migration is increasing, trade is expanding, and geopolitical instability is growing. Already, around 3.2 percent of the global population is made up of international migrants. While the volume of trade is set to nearly double by 2030.
This creates a major challenge for border agencies, who also have to meet a growing set of citizen expectations with finite resources. The public expects borders to be watertight. But they also want border experiences to be as frictionless as possible.
Leaders in border agencies know that scaling up collaborative digital solutions and intelligent automation are critical in resolving these challenges. But in many agencies that journey still needs to accelerate. The ambition? To use data intelligently to reduce costs, increase security, and enable frictionless border experiences by design.
